And Aashna Zaveri, the VPA heroine, might star in this one as well, he said. “I shared a good chemistry with her in VPA…and the director will be Muruganandh who worked with me in Lollu Sabha. I will be playing the lead in the movie and produce it as well.” In VPA style, the next movie might also see him rough up a few baddies. “If the script demands, I shall not hesitate to do fight sequences and other elements of commercial cinema,” he added.
