Sanda is upcoming tamil movie, starred famous director Sunder C and Namitha.
Starring Sundar C, Namitha, Nadhiya, Vivek and Ragini, Shakthi Chidambaram’s Sanda in spite of its name, emphasizes peaceful living. Vivek plays a double role and has some hilarious moments to offer.
For Sundar C, who has surprisingly received a rather warm response from the audience, this is his next action flick. Nadhiya sports the role of Sundar’s mother, but is in no way a subdued submissive woman. Once again, she plays the lively, quick-witted mother and is sure to warm our hearts once more.
For Shakthi Chidambaram, this is the biggest budget yet and he has invested great faith in its success. With shooting completed, the crew is busy with post-production work.

‘Nobody can do what I do’!
After the stupendous success of Billa, you’d expect its heroine Namitha to be on top of the world. But the actress is worried.
Namitha says that while Billa has done wonders for her career, she didn’t anticipate the flip side. “Since I played Eesha Koppikar’s role (in Don), I was always in glam outfits or lounging on the beach. I received tremendous response for that role, so now all filmmakers want Namitha on the beach! In the past three months, I’ve been to every beach in Malaysia, Andaman and Nicobar islands shooting beach sequences. But what’s really worrying me is that I’ve tanned so much – I don’t remember what I looked like earlier because I’m perpetually in the sea,” laughs Namitha.
And while she had a fabulous time working with Ajit in the film, when asked about her co-star Nayantara, Namitha sticks to, “no comments”. But was she apprehensive of sharing screen space with Nayantara? “Not at all. Nobody can do what I can do; there’s only one Namitha,” is the candid reply.
If that sounds like arrogance, it’s not. Namitha’s very confident of the way her career’s shaping up since Billa. She’s juggling the shooting of four films right now and all of them star big names in the Tamil industry. The roles too are “really different”, insists the actress.
“I have Indravizha with Srikanth, which is similar to Fatal Attraction. I play a married supermodel who’s in love with another married man and refuses to let go of him even though he wants to end the relationship. It’s a challenging character and I think people will love it,” feels Namitha.
Her next two films, Thee and Perumal, are with Sundar C. “Thee will have me playing a powerful politician who’s a control freak. It’s unlike anything I’ve played before,” she explains. Meanwhile, in Perumal, Namitha plays a rowdy. “She wears pavadai and keds, chews paan and rides a bike. The role is hilarious and I will be riding the bikes myself. In fact, back home in Surat, I’d ride bikes at 120 km and my folks would freak out,” reveals the actress.
Namitha has also done a Kannada film called Indra recently, but she has no clue on the latest updates, including its release, “because no one from the team has kept in touch with me since I finished the film,” she says.
Any more Kannada films in her kitty? “None because I’m not comfortable doing them. Kannada filmmakers require me to shoot only in Bangalore and Mysore and since I’m really busy in Chennai, I don’t think I’ll be able to manage them,” admits Namitha.
Any ambitions of heading to Bollywood? “Not at all. A couple of months ago, fans performed a paal abhishekam for a 60-ft cut-out of mine for the success of Billa. I don’t think even Aishwarya Rai Bachchan gets such appreciation from her fans. I love the south and my fans here are my biggest support,” she says.
