Dhanush`s next film gets new title

Chennai: The title of Tamil actor Dhanush`s new romantic-comedy `Sotta Vazhakutty` has been changed to `Naiyaandi`, according to the director.

"It was earlier titled `Sotta Vazhakutty` but now it has been changed to `Naiyaandi` as I found this title more apt to the context of the film," A. Sarkunam said in a statement.

While Dhanush has been finalised to play the male lead, the makers are still hunting for a heroine. The film`s other cast members include Parota Suri, Satyan and Lakshmy Ramakrishnan.

"We still are on the lookout for the female lead. The story tracks the events that pave way to hilarious moments in the love story between a lantern selling boy and a soon-to-be dentist girl," he added.

The primary shooting of the film is set to begin from February. It is produced by S. Kadiresan under the banner of Five Star Films.

Meanwhile, Dhanush is about to wrap up shooting for his debut Bollywood project `Raanjhnaa`, opposite Sonam Kapoor.
