Malayalam heartthrob Dulquer Salmaan is all set to return to take Tamil filmdom by storm. Last seen playing Gemini Ganesan in Savitri biopic, Mahanati, he has bagged his fourth Tamil project, to be directed by debutant Ra Karthik.
Titled Vaan, the film, a travel-based script, was launched in a customary puja ceremony earlier today in Chennai. The film will feature three heroines and it has already been revealed that Kriti Kharbhanda and Kalyani Priyadarshan have been signed as the leading ladies.
The third heroine is yet to be finalised. Not long ago, it was revealed that Nivetha Pethuraj is also part of the project. However, her name was eventually ruled out.
â€śIt is a travel movie and we are in the process of finalising the four heroines for the flick. People have a misconception that if there are four heroines in a film, it would be a romantic one. But, I can vouch that my film will be unique and different in all possible ways. It will be a feel-good flick suitable for all age groups,â€ť director Karthik told Deccan Chronicle.
He also clarified that the film will not be made as a bilingual. â€śThe film will only be made in Tamil. We will shoot in and around Tamil Nadu as well as in North India.,â€ť he said. The technical team includes cinematographer George C Williams, award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad and debutant composer Dheena Dhayalan.
Dulquer, who made his Tamil debut with Balaji Mohan's Vaaya Moodi Pesuvum, went on to make his mark in Mani Ratnam's OK Kanmani and was next seen in Mahanati. Instead of signing bilinguals, it's interesting to note that Dulquer is doing straight Tamil films and is expanding his market in Kollywood.
