Pa Ranjith’s production house Neelam Productions will be collaborating with Little Red Car and Singapore-based production house Golden Ratio Films to produce five films. The five directors picked out for directing the films are Merku Thodarchi Malai fame Lenin Bharathi, Pariyerum Perumal filmmaker Mari Selvaraj, Akiran Moses, Franklin Jacob, and Suresh Mari.
Speaking at the event held to announce the new venture, Pa Ranjith is reported to have said, “I don’t believe in making art-house films. I want to make commercial films that showcase my ideologies.”
Wow, that is indeed a different way of thinking!
The first film to go on the floors will be the Mari Selvaraj directorial. The director is currently busy directing Dhanush in a film that has not been titled yet. Incidentally, Mari Selvaraj’s Pariyerum Perumal was bankrolled by Pa Ranjith under his banner Neelam Productions.
Santhosh Narayanan composed music for this venture, while Sridhar has cranked the camera and Selva RK had edited the film. The film’s star cast included Kathir playing the title role with Anandhi as his lead pair.
Pa Ranjith also revealed that he has signed three new projects with other production houses to wield the megaphone. His last directorial was Kaala, released last year.
