Prakash Raj to Direct Nana Patekar


Prakash Raj will direct the Hindi and Marathi versions of Un Samayal Araiyil. The actor has roped in Nana Patekar to play the male lead in both, and hopes to begin filming by April 2015. Speaking to The New Indian Express, Prakash said, “As a director, I think Nana will be right for Hindi and Marathi. I have made the film in three languages, and it has been accepted. I hope that with Nana, the film can be seen and accepted by a different audience.”

Though Un Samayal Araiyil did not fare well at the box office, the film went on to gain critical acclaim for Prakash Raj. The South Indian Cinematographers’ Association is planning to recognize Prakash Raj’s achievement by honouring him at a function in Malaysia next month.
