Actor Yogi Babu is one of the busiest actors of Tamil cinema right now and is someone who is always in the news for either signing a new project or wrapping up a film. But now the actor has hit the news for all wrong reasons but not for his deeds but for the work of his next film. The actor who had a successful last outing in the comedy action entertainer Jackpot which had actress Jyothika and Revathi in the lead roles, is gearing up for the release of his next comedy entertainer titled as Puppy. Recently, actor RJ Balaji unveiled the first look poster of the film on his twitter handle. Now, that poster has landed Yogi Babu and the team of Puppy in trouble.
The first look poster of the movie shared by actor RJ Balaji featured the portrait of saint Nithyanandha and porn star Jonny Sins in the background while actors Yogi Babu and Varun Isari Kamalakannan along with a dog were seen in a strangely fishy look as if they were looking in to something cringe worthy. The first look poster has grabbed the attention of a religious and political outfit in the city and he has written to the Chennai police commissioner to take action against the film. In the letter, A. Selvam, the deputy secretary of the Shiva Sena, writes that, ‘The poster of the drama has put up the image of Johnny Sins, a US porn star, with the godman Nithyanandha. The later presents discourse on Hindu religion and putting up his image with that of a porn star has not only hurt the sentiments of the Hindus, it will also pave way to create obscene thoughts in the hearts of youngsters. Hence, I request you to take action against the production unit of team Puppy and its director, and also to ensure that the entertainer hits the theaters only after these controversial scenes are removed.’
The motion picture is produced by none other than Varun’s uncle Isari Ganesh under his home banner Vels Films International. Even his last venture Comali ran in to trouble after the trailer of the flick had scenes which trolled super star Rajinikanth about his political entry. The comedy entertainer is scripted and directed by debutant story teller Nutty Dev, who also goes by the name Morattu Single. Actor Varun Isari Kamalakannan who has played supporting roles in the flicks like Thalaivaa, Bogan, and Vanamagan will be playing the lead role in the flick. The actor will be romancing actress Samyuktha Hegde in the venture while Yogi Babu will be seen in a pivotal role. The music for the flick will be composed by Dharan Kumar. While cinematographer Deepak Kumar will be seen behind the camera for the movie, Richard will be trimming the entertainer.
On the professional front, actor Yogi Babu will be seen in thalapathy Vijay’s Bigil and is currently busy shooting for the super star Rajinikanth starrer Darbar. The actor also has numerous projects in his pipeline including Shaitan Ka Bachcha, Kadaisi Vivasayi, Nindru Kolvaan, Asura Guru, etc. On the other hand, actor Varun Isari Kamalakannan who is gearing up for the release of Puppy also has a flick named as Vinodhan under the directorial of director Victor Jayaraj.
