Rumours are floating in Kollywood citing that Shanmugapandian, youngest son of actor Vijayakanth, might soon be launched as hero in Tamil films. It was rumored some time back that the actor-turned-politician had detailed discussion with director Boopathy Pandian about the debut of his youngest son in films.
Contrary to what was believed, it now dawns that it won’t be Boopathy Pandian who would be directing the debut film of Shanmugapandian. Vijayakanth, his wife Premalatha and brother-in-law and producer Sudeesh have been listening to various scripts from many directors to select the appropriate script to be the launch pad of Shanmugapandian.
It is said that though Vijayakanth loved the script, a mix of riveting action and comedy, narrated to him by Boopathy, he is said to be apprehensive about whom to be cast in the comedy section of the film. His family members are also said to be hesitant in introducing Pandian in an action film.
In order to doubly ensure that the launch-paid of his son turns out to be the best, Vijayakanth has reportedly put on hold the script narrated to him by Boopathy Pandian. In the coming days, he would be listening to some more scripts before arriving at a decision
