They might have worked together in the critically acclaimed Chennaiyil Oru Naal, but it’s been almost 20 years since Sarath Kumar and Radikaa paired up for a film. Now, that’s going to change as the real-life couple is all set to play husband and wife on screen as well. The duo will be seen together in Dhana’s Vaanam Kottatum, which stars Vikram Prabhu in the lead.
A source says, “Sarath Kumar and Radikaa have played love interests in several films together, and the last notable one is Suryavamsam. They did share screen space in Chennaiyil Oru Naal, but they didn’t pair up with each other. However, in Vaanam Kottatum, they will be seen playing a couple. It’s a family drama, and has Vikram Prabhu and Aishwarya Rajesh playing siblings, while Madonna Sebastian has been roped in as the former’s pair. The director had met the two separately for a story narration and both were kicked about the script.”
Interestingly, the film’s story and dialogues have been penned by Mani Ratnam and Dhana, who last helmed Padaiveeran. The source adds, “He’s assisted the ace director in several films, and was part of his promotional team for Kaatru Veliyidai as well. Mani Ratnam is also producing this film under his banner, and it will go on floors from July.” While Govind Vasantha will compose the music, Preetha has come on board as the cinematographer.
