Shoot for Jada is complete and actor Kathir has begun dubbing for his portions. The sports film is directed by newcomer Kumaran, and stars Kathir as a football player.

The filmmakers announced the news yesterday. The official trailer will release soon.

An official press statement said, “Jada talks about the interesting incidents that happen in the life of a football player from Tamil Nadu. The director has discussed a few issues that are prevalent in the current society. Kathir has started dubbing for his portions.” The film is produced by Poet Studio and Sanaa Studios. Music is by Sam CS, cinematography is AR Surya, and editing is by Richard Kevin.

The first look of the movie was released by Dhanush in January. It featured Kathir in a jersey, sitting on a football ground. The film was in its final stages of shooting then.

After his role as Pariyan in director Mari Selvaraj’s Pariyerum Perumal, Kathir acted in his first commercial movie Sathru which released on March 8. He played the role of a police officer, and Srushti Dange played the female lead.  Sathru was directed by newcomer Naveen Nanjundan.

Kathir is currently working on the Atlee-Vijay film Thalapathy63. This is Vijay and Atlee’s third movie after Theri and Mersal. Kathir came on board in January. While details about his role has been kept under wraps, it has been reported that he plays an interesting character.

Speaking about it, he told Times Now, “We were in discussion for some time and the team even did a look test. Eventually, I came on board. I have no words to express my excitement. I’ve really admired Vijay anna. I am so happy to be working with him. I really can’t divulge any details about my role, except that it will be an interesting one.”
