Gautham Karthik has joined hands with director Arun Chandhiran for his next film titled Chellappillai. the film is produced by Firoz Hussain Sheriff of SST Productions. The first look poster of Chellappillai was released on the occasion of the 125th anniversary of Subhash Chandra Bose and became a huge hit on social media.
Director Arun Chandhiran, in a statement, said, “ On the behalf of entire Chellappillai team, I would like to thank everyone for making the first look motion poster a grand success. Marking the 125th anniversary of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose, we wanted to pay our homage and henceforth, we decided to encapsulate this element into the motion teaser. Netaji Subash Chandra Bose is the Godfather of our Nation and I felt that the contemporary generation has to know about deeds of valour. I was deeply influenced by a famous dialogue of Veteran Sivaji Ganesan sir in the movie Devar Magan – “ When Netaji invited youngsters to come and battle out for Independence, the majority of them were Tamilians. In the motion teaser, we have incorporated the Memorial of Indian National Army that had the foundation stone laid by Netaji in 1942, which had Japanese, English, Singaporean language, and Tamil, which is a pride to everyone here. Such fascinating connections between Netaji and Tamilians made me bring in his values herein the movie, which is an out and out entertainer. We are currently finalizing the cast and crew and will be making an official announcement on it soon.”
