“Though the title is Jihad, the movie will have no controversies. It will not hurt anyone’s sentiments. It will be a clean entertainer with a nice message,” say sources, adding: “Besides wielding the megaphone, Ameer will also play the lead role.”
The ‘Paruthi Veeran‘ maker, who was set to play the lead role in Bharathiraja’s comeback venture ‘Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum‘, is no more part of the project now. Sources say he would utilize the dates he allotted to ‘Annakodiyum Kodiveeranum’ to ‘Jihad‘.
Ameer is in the news for the past few months, ever since the tussle over wages between Film Employees Federation of South India and Tamil Film Producers Council intensified. The actor-director stood on the side of workers.
