The team of `My Dear Father'

Chennai: A Tamilian settled in the U.S, `Atlanta' Ganesh, is directing an English telefilm, `My Dear Father', to be released in mid-2007.

An actor himself, he has written the story and the screenplay.

Krishna (of Sahana fame) and Linda Aresnio, a girl from the U.S., play the lead roles. Y. Gee Mahendra plays the title role of the father.

The story line: Jennifer, a white American, learns from her mother, on her deathbed, that her father is an Indian from Chennai. The young girl comes to Chennai in search of her roots, where she runs into some interesting situations. How she finds her long-lost father forms the rest of the story.

Mr. Ganesh says it is a crossover film for the U.S., the U.K. and the Indian markets.

The Indian version will have four songs. "Our company, M.J. Creations, plans to produce five crossover films a year. Popular story-dialogue writer G.K. is assisting me." The producer is Mahendra Jogani.

"I am doing some interesting and different roles such as Sathyaraj's father in `Adavadi', a father with a modern outlook in Selvaragavan's `Ithu Malai Nerathu Mayakkam'. I am also doing a comical cameo in `Periyar', besides playing a `gurukkal in `Shrirangam'," said Mr. Mahendra.
