Director Sarkunam has finally found his female lead for forthcoming Tamil film Sottavalakutty. After considering a few big names like Samantha and Hansika Motwani, he has roped in Malayalee girl Nazriya Nazim to pair up with Dhanush.
The actress is currently doing her first Tamil film, Thirumanam Ennum Nikkah, which has Jai in the lead, for producer Aascar V Ravichandran.
The director is set to begin shooting for Sottavalakutty, a rural comedy, in February. The project, which was supposed to have kickstarted last year, was pushed back after Dhanush got busy with Bharat Bala’s Mariyaan and his Bollywood debut Raanjhnaa.
