Santhanam started off in Kollywood as a comedy actor. Slowly, he became a lead hero in Tamil films and managed to give some hit films. However, his last few films have received negative reviews and poor box office collection. Yet, all these factors are not weighing him down as Santhanam continues to sign film after film. His long-pending film Dikkiloona is now all set for a grand release. The film was initially slated to release in theatres. Since theatres across Tamil Nadu are still shut due to the second wave of the novel coronavirus pandemic, the makers have decided to take the OTT route.
Dikkiloona's streaming rights were sold to Zee5 for a high price. Now, according to the official announcement, Dikkiloona will release on the OTT platform on September 10 ahead of Vinayaka Chathurthi. Directed by Karthik Yogi, Dikkiloona is jointly produced by Kotapadi J Rajesh of KJR Studios and Sinish of Soldiers Factory. Anagha of Natpe Thunai fame, Shirini, Harbhajan Singh, Anandaraj, Yogi Babu, Munishkanth, Rajendran, YouTuber Prashanth, Shara, Chitra Lakshmanan, and Arun Alexander will play supporting roles in the comedy entertainer. Yuvan Shankar Raja has composed the music for the film while Arunraja Kamaraj has written the lyrics.
