Producer-distributor Udhayanidhi Stalin is shooting for Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal, his second venture in the lead role. Even as the film’s shoot is progressing in a smooth manner, Udhaya continues to explore possibilities of which film(s) to take up for release and distribution through his banner, the Red Giant Movies.
Udhaya debuted as hero in last year’s Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, which was one of the successful films of the year. In his second film, Udhaya gets to pair up opposite a senior and established actress Nayantara. Udhaya, who started off as a distributor and then turned producer, has his own ways of selecting a film for release and distribution.
Many producers are regularly in touch with Udhaya urging him to take up the release and distribution rights of their films. Udhaya, who has paucity of time, does enquire with scribes close to him as to what kind of ‘talk’ they heard about a particular film before deciding to take up the film’s distribution.
He also discusses with his friends and with his close circle of advisers before watching a film to decide whether or not the film would do well at the box-office. Of late, Udhaya is said to be eyeing taking up the release and distribution of superstar Rajnikanth’s upcoming film Kochadaiyan. It remains to be seen whether or not he succeeds as except for Endhiran: The Robot, none of Rajnikanth’s films has been handled by the Sun network so far.
