Santhosh Jayakumar’s next is a rom-com titled Mr Virgin
Director Santhosh P Jayakumar, who is known for films like Hara Hara Mahadevaki, Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuththu, Ghajinikanth and the recently released Irandam Kuththu, has announced his next. He will be directing and acting in a film titled Mr Virgin, a breezy romantic comedy. The film is likely to go on floors soon and is being planned as a summer 2021 theatrical release.
He took to social media to share a video teaser of the announcement and write, “Thank u God . Here’s the Title of my next as actor and director. Presenting you #MrVirgin. A breezy romantic comedy (sic).”
This will be Santhosh’s second film as an actor. He debuted as the lead with Irandam Kuththu, which is a sequel to Gautham Karthik-starrer Iruttu Araiyil Murattu Kuththu. On turning actor with the film, he had told us earlier, “A lot of ‘no’s from actors and their hesitation and reluctance towards the genre of the movie drove me to take this decision. I feel this genre is not a wrong genre… it’s an adult comedy. At a time when audiences are exposed to all sorts of content on OTT platforms and the internet, I don’t think that making an adult genre film, especially an adult comedy, is wrong.”
