Srikanth is back in the limelight after some set backs in his career during the mid 2000s. The actor is at the moment busy with a handful of films in Tamil and Telugu.
In Tamil Srikanth is shooting for director Shankar's 'Nanban' alongside a pompous star cast to the likes of Vijay, Jiiva and Ileana. A Tamil version of Bollywood's '3 Idiots' 'Nanban' is touted to have all the ingredients of a Shankar film in terms of grandeur, larger than life sets and beautiful locales over seas.
Apart from Shankar's 'Nanban,' Srikanth will don the lead's role in 'Ethiri En 3.' This flick is believed to be a thriller with Poonam Bajwa playing Srikanth's female lead. Srikanth also recently signed 'Paagan' which will be directed by Aslam, a subordinate to director Ameer.
Janani Iyer who made a mark with Bala's 'Avan Ivan' has been signed on to play the female lead in this 'Paagan.' The shoot for 'Paagan' has already started rolling from Pollachi. Character artist and popular comedienne Kovai Sarala will play an important role in this film.
