Kuppathu Raja, directed by choreographer Baba Bhaskar, will star actors Parthiepan and GV Prakash. This is Baba Bhaskar’s debut directorial.
Speaking from the sets of the movie, Parthiepan told the Deccan Chronicle, “I am excited to be part of this project and this is the first time I am sharing screen space with GV. There is a huge slum set that has been erected and I was astounded seeing the magnanimous set-up. I have the confidence that this will be a big film for both of us.”
Parthiepan says his relationship with GV goes a long way back as both GV Prakash and his wife, Saindhavi, had sung for his 2014 movie Kathai Thirakaithai Vasanam Iyakkam. ” Since then we have been good friends. On the first day of shoot, GV said, ‘Instead of being directed by you, we have got the chance to team up like this!” he quipped.
The film went on floors on 30 March after a pooja. An announcement on the rest of the cast and crew is expected soon.
