“Thx @anirudhofficial 4 being a part of #manithan .. Uve made the song so special! @Music_Santhosh @Ahmed_filmmaker,” Udhayanidhi posted on his Twitter page.
Directed by Ahmed of ‘Endrendrum Punnagai’ fame, ‘Manithan’ has Hansika as the lead lady and Vivek, Prakash Raj and Radha Ravi among others in important roles. It is a remake of Bollywood hit ‘Jolly LLB’.
The story of ‘Jolly LLB’ revolved around the early life of lawyer Jagdish Tyagi aka Jolly and focuses on his attempt to earn 6 innocent wage earners their rights and his journey against the monopolistic behavior of the rich and judicial corruption.
