Kattappava Kanom (Eng: Kattappa is Missing) is a 2017 Tamil-language comedy film written and directed by Mani Seiyon, starring Sibi Sathyaraj and Aishwarya Rajesh in the leading roles. Featuring an ensemble cast of supporting actors including Kaali Venkat, Mime Gopi, Livingston and Yogi Babu, the film was released on 17 March 2017.
In early 2016, R. Manikandan announced that he would make a film revolving around a lucky fish starring Sibi Sathyaraj in the lead role and that Aishwarya Rajesh and Chandini Tamilarasan would portray the leading female roles. The project developed under the title Thanni Raja, with Kaali Venkat, Mime Gopi and Livingston announced as cast members in March 2016. Film director Nalan Kumarasamy also later joined the cast to portray a veterinary doctor, who attends to a fish. The film was re-titled as Kattappava Kanom during June 2016, making reference to the popular character of Kattappa from Baahubali: The Beginning (2015) portrayed by Sibiraj’s father, Sathyaraj. Vijay Sethupathi agreed to work as a narrator in the film, and dubbed for his portions in late 2016.
