Director Arivazhagan is ‘pleased’ to have Nayanthara as the female lead of his next film. Known for directing movies such as Eeram, Kuttram 23, told IANS:
“I’m pleased to have Nayanthara on board for this heroine centric psychological thriller. Her stardom and acting prowess will add value to the project and elevate it.”
The project will be bankrolled by Shankar of SP Cinemas.
Talking about the film, he added: “Other than being a psychological thriller, the exact genre of the movie will be disclosed either in the first look or the teaser to entice audiences. It’s been my long-time desire to make a female centric project and I’m excited things fell in place with Nayanthara.”
The pre-production is already underway.
“We hope to start the principal shooting from December end or the beginning of January next year. The story will be set in Chennai, and we plan to wrap up the project in 45 days,” he said.
SS. Thaman has been roped in to compose the tunes.
Nayanthara currently has over half a dozen projects in her kitty. These include Tamil films Imaikka Nodigal, Aramm, Kolayuthir Kaalam, Co Co, Velaikkaran, a yet-untitled Telugu project with Nandamuri Balakrishna and Malayalam film Love Action Drama.
