Ever since his exit from the reality shows Bigg Boss, Mahat Raghavendra has been on a film signing spree. Having already signed three projects as the lead, he has now signed a new project in which he will be paired with Aishwarya Dutta model and actor, one of the most controversial candidates from Bigg Boss Tamil Season 2.
Touted to be a romcom, the film will be directed by Prabhu Ram C. According to sources, in the film, Mahat will be seen as a young man from North Madras who falls in love with a rich woman played by Aishwarya Dutta.
Bankrolled by Varunalaya Cine Creations, the project will go on floors next month. In an interview to Indian Express, the director said, "Itâ€™s a fun film on the lines of Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara and Vaalu. The contrast between their characters will be interesting. I wanted someone similar to GV Prakash and after watching Bigg Boss, I felt Mahat would be apt. I also found Aishwarya Dutta to be interesting as she was an influential presence in the show.â€ť
Aishwarya Dutta who hails from West Bengal made her debut as an actor in Tamilukku Yen Ondrai Azhuthavum. The actor is said to have gained a second chance to revive her acting career via the Bigg Boss show. She was declared the runner-up of Season 2. Mahat was recently roped in for a role in the Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster Attarintiki Daredi, which features Simbu in the lead.
Mahat has already commenced shooting for the project, which is being directed by Sundar C. Apparently, Mahat didnâ€™t mind doing a brief role alongside his friend Simbu.
