Jiiva, Arjun And Raashi Khanna Team Up For Pa Vijay’s Next Titled ‘Methavi’; First Look Out Now

Actors Jiiva, Arjun Sarja, and Raashi Khanna have been roped in to play the lead roles in lyricist-actor-producer-director Pa Vijay‘s next film. Methavi is the third directorial of Pa Vijay after Strawberry (2015) and Aaruthra (2018). The first look of the film was launched on Friday. With Jiiva and Arjun on either side, the title Methavi finds its place in the middle of the poster. Though not a typical first-look poster, it does let out a bit about the film.

The letters of the mud-red-coloured title seem to have tiny cracks on them, with an ancient boat, temple, mortar and pestle, and a veiled individual featuring in the letters. The keys of a piano with blood dripping are also seen at the bottom of the title in the centre. The outline of a man’s face is also visible on two of the letters. Looks like Pa Vijay’s favourite thriller genre is now set back in the medieval period.

Methavi is being bankrolled by S Raja’s Makkal Arasan Pictures, marking the third venture of the production banner. Marking the producer’s birthday, May 15, the team provided Film Employees’ Federation of South India (FEFSI) headed by RK Selvamani with 25,000 bags of rice weighing 5kg each.

Apart from the lead trio, the film will also see actors Sara, Kaithi fame Dheena, Indraja Shankar, Radha Ravi, YG Mahendran, Azhagam Perumal, and Rohini in important roles. Deepak Kumar Padhy will be handling the camera, Yuvan Shankar Raja will be composing music with San Lokesh on edit. The film will go on floors once the coronavirus-imposed lockdown ends.

Meanwhile Jiiva who was last seen in Raju Murugan‘s Gypsy will next feature in Kabir Khan‘s 83 and debutant N Rajasekar’s Kalathil Santhipom. Arjun who was last seen in PS Mithran‘s Hero will next feature in Priyadarshan‘s Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham. Raashi Khanna who was last seen in Telugu in Kranthi Madhav’‘s World Famous Lover and in Tamil in Vijay Chandar‘s Sangathamizhan will next feature in Sundar C’s Aranmanai 3, the third installment to the Tamil horror franchise Aranmanai and in Hari‘s Aruvaa.
