The first look poster and title of director Adhik Ravichandran‘s film with actor-choreographer-director Prabhu Deva has been unveiled on Friday evening on the occasion of Valentine’s day. The film has been titled Bagheera and the poster features a bald and bleeding Prabhu Deva adorning third eye sunglasses. A bunch of eyeballs also fill the background leaving us with an eerie, creeped out feeling. And you cannot miss the angry cartoon bear clinging on to the title?!
RV Bharathan is bankrolling the thriller under his Bharathan Pictures banner.
Dhanush took to Twitter to share the poster.

The film is being promoted with the hashtag ‘Kadhalan Returns’ but on the contrary, also features the words ‘No More Valentines Day’. In a recent video, Prabhu Deva revealed that the film is a different from his previous ones and that he will be seen in many different avatars.
While Anegan fame Amyra Dastur will be paired opposite the actor in the film, the rest of the cast is yet to be revealed. On the technical front, Abinandhan Ramanujam is handling camera, Anthony Ruben is editing, Ganesan Sekar is composing music and Siva Yadav is helming art. Rajasekar and Anbarivu are handling stunts with Baba Baskar choreographing dance. PA Vijay is the lyricist and Sathya NJ is working on costumes.
Meanwhile, Prabhu Deva whose last directorial Dabangg 3 starring Salman Khan did not fare well in the BO, is busy with his next Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai starring Salman. He will also feature in AC Mugil Chellapan’s Pon Manickavel co-starring Nivetha Pethuraj which is due for release soon. His previous films, Devi 2 (Tamil), Abhinetri 2 (Telugu) and Khamoshi (Hindi) did not fare all that well at the box office too.
