Parattai - Suresh Krishna steps in

Tuesday, October 10, 2006 • Tamil Comments

Director Suresh Krishna, who directed Rajinikanth in movies like Annamalai, Baasha and Baba, is all set to wield the megaphone for Super Star's son-in-law now.

Interestingly, Raju Sundaram, who was supposed to direct Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram starring Dhanush, backed out at the last moment.

Now the producer of the movie Keyar has passed the baton to Suresh Krishna, who has recently completed his Hindi venture Rocky.

Sources close to Keyar said, 'Raju Sundaram had readily agreed to direct the movie. But when things were in place to commence shooting, the choreographer had reportedly backed out stating that his busy commitments to do choreography in Telugu and Hindi movies prevented him from concentrating the movie.'

Keyar is keen on completing the movie at the earliest. Hence he chose to have a golden handshake with Raju Sundaram and replaced him with Suresh Krishna.

Parattai Engira Azhagu Sundaram is a remake of Kannada blockbuster Jogi and features Archana and Meera Jasmine with Dhanush in lead roles.
