Saraswathi Sabatham, which is currently under production with actors Jai and Swetha Thomas in the lead, is not a remake of the 1966 mythological film with the same title.

The crew had opted for the title because of its relevance to the script by debutant director K Chandru. The older version was about a dispute between three goddesses — Lakshmi, Saraswathi and Sakthi — and featured actors Sivaji Ganesan, Gemini Ganesan, Savithri, K R Vijaya and Padmini in lead roles. However, the new version is said to be a thorough comic caper and has actors VTV Ganesh, Sathyan, Manobala and Subbu Panju in lead roles.

This is Swetha’s first solo heroine role in Tamil after she made her debut with Poraali in 2011. Saraswathi Sabatham is on the verge of completion and Prem, who has worked under Harris Jayaraj before, turns composer with this film.

AGS Entertainment, which is producing the film, is also working on other projects: Director K V Anand’s untitled flick with actor Dhanush; Aishwarya Dhanush’s next directorial Vai Raja Vai with actor Gautham Karthik; another untitled project with actor Atharva; director Jayam Raja’s next flick starring his brother Jayam Ravi; and actor Vadivelu’s comeback film Jagajjala Pujabala Tenaliraman . All these are under different stages of production.
