Remember Aan Pavam. It was the maiden acting venture of actor – director Pandiarajan that propelled him to fame. A comedy caper, it was directed by Pandiarajan himself.

Now Aan Pavam is back. Hold on. It is no sequel to the movie. Rather it would be a television serial to be aired in a popular Tamil television channel. Sathyajothi Thyagarajan, who produced many blockbusters on big screen, is producing the serial.
In this serial Rajesh and Meera Krishnan are playing the role as father and mother; Barath Kalyan, Raaj Kamal, Venkat, Satish are the sons. Pairing with them are Jayshree, Magi, Gowri, Lakshmi, Ishwarya. Others who play important roles are Tamiz Mani, Bombay Babu, Suji Bala, Pandi, Magima.
It has nothing to do with the movie Aan Pavam, sources say.
