After the success of Thupparivaalan, filmmaker Mysskin has announced that his next project will be with actor Shanthanu Bhagyaraj. The project is gearing up for shoot from May and the makers are busy putting together the rest of the team.
Reports have emerged that Mysskin is planning to rope in double Oscar-winning composer AR Rahman for the project and has apparently initiated talks with him. While there’s still no official confirmation about whether Rahman has accepted Mysskin’s offer, we do know from our reliable sources that the duo recently met.
Known for having worked mostly with new and less known composers except for maestro Ilayaraja on one occasion, Mysskin will be teaming up with Rahman for the first time if the latter comes on board.
It’s also the first time the Anjaathe director will team up with Shanthanu, known for films such as Sakkarakatti and Vaaimai. On signing the project, Shanthanu had said that it’s like his first film and he had no words to express his feeling.
He also described this phase as his rebirth. He had also said that he’s being written a phenomenal character by Mysskin. Lensman PC Sreeram will crank the camera for the yet-untitled project, to be bankrolled Ravindran Chandrasekhar.
Earlier this week, reports claimed that Nithya Menen and Sai Pallavi are in talks for the leading ladies roles in the film. Mysskin is said to work on the sequel to Thupparivaalan after wrapping up this project. Shanthanu is said to undergo a major image makeover for the film.
AR Rahman would be composing for Vijay’s upcoming yet-untitled with AR Murugadoss. The project marks the third time collaboration of Vijay and Murugadoss after Thuppakki and Kaththi. Which will also mark Rahman's reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini.
