Actor-composer GV Prakash Kumar, whose role in Bala's Naachiyaar is eagerly looked forward to, has crooned a number set to Ilaiyaraaja's music in the film and he's thrilled about it. This is the first time he has sung in his composition and it's definitely a proud moment in his career. Apparently, the song is said to come at an important juncture in the film and it was Bala, who suggested that Prakash should sing the song. With the film having been wrapped up, the makers are hoping to release it next month. In Naachiyaar, Prakash plays a role that's unlike anything he's essayed so far in his career. He looked totally unrecognisable in the film's teaser.
Prakash is undoubtedly the busiest actor in Kollywood. With nearly half a dozen projects in his kitty, he is said to have signed one more film with director Arivazhagan, who last made the critically-acclaimed Kuttram 23. It is rumoured that Arivazhagan has roped in Prakash for a crime-thriller and the project is in the final stages of negotiation. A reliable source close to Prakash has confirmed that he has given his nod in principal, but he is yet to sign on the dotted line.
Talking about the project, a source close to Prakash said, â€śItâ€™s true theyâ€™ve discussed an idea and are planning to work on it. However, the project might take time to materialise as Arivazhagan is busy finding a producer. Itâ€™ll be a crime-thriller and Prakash will play a role thatâ€™s totally unexpected of him. The project should roll from this year-end.â€ť
Arivazhagan was supposed to work on a women-centric project with Manju Warrier, and had even approached the actress who liked what she heard. Unfortunately, thereâ€™s been no development on that front since their first meeting.
Prakash awaits the release of Balaâ€™s Naachiyar, in which he has teamed up with Jyothika. Itâ€™s a crime-thriller set in Chennai and Thanjavur. He also has projects such as Adangathey, 4G, Semma, Kuppathu Raja, and Ayngaran, apart from the Tamil remakes of Telugu films 100% Love and Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada. He also has a film called Sarvam Thaalam Mayam with cinematographer-filmmaker Rajiv Menon. Unfortunately, the project has been put on the back burner due to unavailability of a producer.
