If we are going to roll out a query about who is the most successful father and son combo in Tamil cinema to the Tamil audience, the obvious answer would be none other than veteran actor Sathyaraj and his son Sibi Sathyaraj. The father and son duo has shared the screen space in many entertainers. Their affiliation began in the action comedy entertainer Jore, following which the duo has delivered Vetrivel Sakthivel, Mannin Maindhan, and Kovai Brothers. The duo was last seen together on screens in the horror comedy thriller Jackson Durai which hit the theaters in the year 2016 under the directorial of story teller Dharani Dharan. Now, we have an interesting piece of information on their next project.
We have reports coming in that the father and son duo is all set to team up again for a project. The venture is yet to be titled. But according to reports the movie will be directed by film maker Pradeep Krishnamoorthy who had previous directed the psychological thriller Saithan which had actor Vijay Antony in the lead role and later directed the action drama Sathya which had actors Sibi Sathyaraj, Remya Nambeesan and Varlaxmi Sarathkumar in the lead roles. According to a source close to the story teller, “Director Pradeep Krishnamoorthy will soon be directing his next film which will be a murder mystery thriller. Sathyaraj sir and his son Sibi Sathyaraj will be essaying pivotal roles in the thriller. Both of them will be seen in a very different angle to the ones that they have played together before. If everything goes as planned the project will go on floors from the month of October.” This is amazing news for the actor and also for the fans of the star.
There is also news in the K town that the drama will be the official remake of super hit Kannada film Kavaludaari directed by Hemanth M Rao. The project is still in its initial stages the cast and crew that will be part of the venture is expected to be announced soon. This untitled flick will mark the second time association of the director Pradeep Krishnamoorthy with actor Sibi Sathyaraj. Their previous entertainer Sathya opened up to mixed reviews from the critics in the industry and did not fair in the box office as expected. Guess the duo will be more focused and keen this time around to ensure that this venture does a good commercial business.

Vinod in which he will be sharing the screen space with Nikhila Vimal and also for his mythological mystery thriller Maayon which is directed by N.
