Kathir, Anandhi to Team Up for Drama Thriller With a Message

Anandhi, Kathir At The Pariyerum Perumal Press Meet

Actors Kathir and Anandhi will team up for a Tamil film directed by debutant director Zac Hariss, announced AAR Productions on Wednesday.


The film, which has no title as yet, will mark the second collaboration between Kathir and Anandhi, after the 2018 Tamil drama film Pariyerum Perumal helmed by Mari Selvaraj.

Speaking to Silverscreen India, Kathir said, “[My role] is based on a common man. The story is relatable to any part of the world. It is an interesting, realistic emotion thriller.” Kathir said that shooting for the film would begin in March and April, 2021.

Zac Harriss, who has previously worked as an Assistant Director in the Malayalam, Tamil, and Telugu industries,  told Silverscreen India that the film was a drama thriller. He said, “It is a multi-starrer movie. It’s not a crime thriller. It is drama-based and will touch the emotions of the viewers, make people think, and give a message to society.”

He said that the film would feature two main protagonists whose characters would complement each other. “We have two more female leads in the cast and we are casting established artists. We are in talks for it,” Zac Harriss said.

Actor Narein, who last played a football coach in the 2019 Tamil sports drama Champion, has already joined the team. The rest of the cast and crew members would be announced soon, said Harriss.


According to Harriss, the story was created before the lockdown and pre-production was carried out during the lockdown period.

Harris also said that the title would be announced in January next year.

The production company backing the film, AAAR Productions said in a press note that the film would be their maiden venture in the Tamil film industry. It said it was looking forward to producing “content-driven films”.

AAR Productions also said that filming would begin early in 2021 in various locations in Chennai and Kerala. Further, the film is planned for release during the summer of next year.
