Debutant director Rajesh, who is a long time associate of actor-filmmaker Kamal Haasan and has worked with him in several of his films over the years, has been handed over the reins of the latter's next Tamil outing. Tentatively titled "Ore Iravu", the film's story is said to unfold in a single night. "Kamal had originally planned to direct this project, but he has now asked his most trusted associate Rajesh to helm it. Both have worked in films such as 'Manmadhan Ambu', 'Vishwaroopam' and the forthcoming release 'Uttama Villain'," a source from the film's unit told IANS. Written by Kamal, who will also play the lead, the film will be completely shot in Mauritius. The source added that Trisha Krishnan is most likely to play the female lead. "Kamal had discussed the story with Trisha recently. Apparently, she liked it and wished to be a part of the project. However, she's yet to sign on the dotted line," the source said. The film is said to be a high-octane action-thriller and Kamal plans to rope in some of the best stunt choreographers in the world. Ghibran has been roped in to compose the tunes, and this will be his fourth consecutive project with Kamal after "Vishwaroopam 2", "Papanasam" and "Uttama Villain".
