The director, who is set to make his feature film debut with Echcharikkai Idhu Manidhargal Nadamaadum Idam, will team up with KJR Studios for this untitled project. Notably, KJR Studios recently produced Nayanthara’s Aramm as well.

Talking about the film, Sarjun says, “It’ll be an emotional horror film. Aside from Nayanthara, noone else has been finalised. I approached Rajesh sir (Head of KJR Studios), with the script, and he, in turn, recommended the story to Nayanthara ma’am who also expressed her satisfaction with the script. The plan is to commence shooting from April. By then, Echcharikkai.... would’ve hit the screens.”
