Actor-Music director GV Prakash Kumar, last seen in Sasi’s Sivappu Manjal Pachai as a bike racer, has started work on a bunch of new films. The composer-actor has signed on the dotted line for Bachelor, helmed by debut director Sathish Selvakumar, a former assistant of director Sasi, and an untitled project by another debut director Mathimaran Pugazhendhi, a former assistant to director Vetrimaran. Besides this, he has films such as 100% Kaadhal, Jail and Kaadhalikka Yaarumillai in various stages of production.
Model Divya Bharathi is said to be playing the female lead in Bachelor, which also stars Bagavathi Perumal and Nakkalites-fame Arun Kumar in significant roles. Theni Eshwar handles the camera and San Lokesh the editing, while GV takes on the mantle of composer too, for this film. Of late, GV has been cherry-picking films for which he lends his music.
Cricketer Harbhajan Singh took to Twitter to release the first look of Bachelor.
