Director Pradeep Ranganathan has been receiving a lot of praise for his debut film Comali starring Jayam Ravi, Kajal Aggarwal, Samyuktha Hegde and Yogi Babu. The film produced by Ishari K Ganesh under Vels Film International has entered its sixth week and is standing strong at the box office. Their previous venture LKG starring R.J Balaji and Priya Anand also made good revenue.
Pradeep was recently gifted a Honda City car while the rest of the crew members of Comali were given gold coins by Ishari K Ganesh as a token of gratitude. Prabhu, director of LKG was also gifted a car for the success of his film.

“This is a huge surprise to me as I never expected such an unbelievable gift from Dr Ishari K Ganesh sir. He has been a complete support to me right from the beginning of this project. Now, to see his unconditional gesture of surprising me leaves me emotionally excited. Well, I missed out a particular element about the life of 90s kids in Comali, where the parents would promise of gifting what their kids ask for if they manage to pass examinations with high grades. But in my case, Ganesh sir, who I admire him like a father-figure has made it perfect without making any promises. I thank Jayam Ravi anna, Kajal Aggarwal, Samyuktha, KS Ravikumar sir, Hip-hop Aadhi and every member of the team for making this film a huge success,” said Pradeep in a press release.
Meanwhile, Vels Film International has bankrolled three films after Comali; Puppy starring actors Varun and Yogi Babu, actor Jiiva’s Seeru and Mirchi Shiva’s Sumo. The three films are slated for release this year.
