HYDERABAD: Eros International Media Ltd will release actor Kamal Haasan’s much awaited comedy ‘Uttama Villain’ as well as upcoming actor Sivakarthikeyan’s ‘Rajini Murugan’.
The company, which acquires, co-produces and distributes Indian films across formats, on Tuesday said that for this it has joined hands with director N.Lingusamy’s production house Thirrupathi Brothers Media Pvt Ltd.
“As part of the tie-up, Eros will release two of the most anticipated films in Tamil cinema with Telugu dub,” Eros International said in a regulatory filing to the stock exchange.
A comedy written by Kamal himself and starring Anuskha Shetty, ‘Uttama Villain’ is directed by Ramesh Arvind. The film, whose trailer was released on Pongal day last month, is slated for release on April 2.
‘Rajini Murugan’ is also a comedy and directed by Ponram, whose last venture with Sivakarthikeyan was ‘Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam.’ Eros International managing director Sunil Lulla said both the films will be “high on the entertainment quotient and promise to connect with fans and audiences.” The company had also bagged the worldwide rights last year for Rajinikanth’s Lingaa.
Mr. Lingusamy said that the association with Eros to co-produce the two films was the beginning of a “long and successful journey” with the company.
