Sakka Podu Podu Raja is a 2017 Tamil action comedy film directed by Sethuraman and produced by VTV Ganesh. The film features Santhanam, Vaibhavi Shandilya and Vivek in the leading roles. Featuring cinematography by Abinandhan Ramanujam and edited by Anthony, the film began production in October 2016.[2] This film is a remake of the 2014 Telugu movie Loukyam, starring Gopichand, Rakul Preet Singh, Sampath Raj, Mukesh Rishi and Brahmanandam.




In October 2016, VTV Ganesh announced that he would finance a film directed by newcomer Sethuraman, which would feature Santhanam and Vaibhavi Shandilya in the lead roles.[3] The film was launched with a small ceremony during the middle of the month and the lead pair in attendance.[4] In early November 2016, it was announced that production had begun and Ganesh had signed on comedian Vivek to play a supporting role, while Sampath Raj and Robo Shankar joined the cast.[5][6]

In November 2016, the team approached A. R. Rahman to work on the film as music composer.[7] After the composer turned down the request, VTV Ganesh also enquired with Anirudh Ravichander before signing on Harris Jayaraj.[8] Later, Santhanam announced that actor STR will make his debut as composer in the film. Sharing the news on his Twitter page on Sunday, Santhanam wrote: "It's my godfather and wonderful human Silambarasan, who is going to compose music for first time for this film 'Sakka Podu Podu Raja'."


There are totally 5 songs in this movie which has been composed by STR, his first movie as composer.[9]
