He entered the industry with a tag of VIP producer. Though his first film 'Kuruvi' may not have made him very happy his following attempts were successful and he cemented his place as a heavy weight producer. Udhayanidhi Stalin and his Red Giant Movies are revered names in trade circles today.
Udhayanidhi is currently producing two mega stars movies. One the Kamal-Trisha film directed by K S Ravikumar and the other is Suriya-Shruthi Haasan film directed by A R Murugadoss. After these movies Udhayanidhi is taking a new avatar of an actor.
Owing to his friends' pressure Udhayanidhi has finally said yes to acting. But unlike many Udhayanidhi rightly prefers a humorous subject for his launch. The first one to ready a script for Udhayanidhi was Dharani and the former was uncomfortable with it because it was an out and out action script. After Dharani the scripts of Radha Mohan and Gautham Menon were also discussed. But the luck has favoured Rajesh, who gave the cute romantic film ‘Siva Manasula Sakthi’.
Udhayanidh who recently saw the un-mixed rushes of Rajesh’s new film 'Boss Engira Baskaran' was thoroughly impressed and asked the director if he had a similar subject. The next day Rajesh narrated a story and Udhayanidhi was in splits laughing. The story was approved on the spot. Rajesh will start the film once the first copy of 'Boss’ is ready. Heir rising story, this is.
