Shiva and Santhanam start working on 'Ya Ya'

After making the audience laugh out loud with Kalakalapu, Shiva and Santhanam will be coming together again for their next project 'Ya Ya', for which the shooting has commenced today. The film will be directed by Rajasekar, who was an assistant to Director Rajesh.

Ya Ya will be a romantic comedy and coming from the man who co-worked in films like SMS, Boss Engira Baskaran and OKOK, it is likely to be a very good entertainer. Shiva, who is wrapping up his work with 'Thillu Mullu' and 'Sonna Puriyadhu', will be working closely with the crew. The producers have roped in Vijay Ebenezer of 'Kanden' fame for music.

Do you think the Shiva-Santhanam combo will be able to hit the right chord again?

Gautham Menon to team up with Simbu again

Gautham Menon's current film 'Neethaane En Ponvasantham' is nearing completion and the songs have become quite the rage among fans. Even as it is currently being discussed, rumours about his next have surfaced and they suggest that the director will be teaming up Simbu again in his next venture.

Initially, it was reported that Gautham Menon would be working with Suriya in his next, but since the project got scrapped, it is likely that he will turn to Simbu again. After the success of Vinnaithaandi Varuvaaya, it has long been debated that we might see a sequel to it soon. Now that the Gautham-Simbu pair is together again, we can expect it from the duo.

It is yet to be seen whether A.R.Rahman will be composing the music for the film, or if Gautham Menon will prefer Illayaraja again. No matter the choice, we are sure to have a great show on our hands when the team comes together.

Imagine a Vijay fan and an Ajith fan being conjoined together and fighting it out to decide which movie they should see.
