National award-winning filmmaker Vasanthabalan returns to direction after four years with upcoming Tamil thriller Jail, which features GV Prakash Kumar in the title role. The first look poster and title of the film were unveiled on Friday.
Going by the posters, it looks like Prakash plays someone locked up and the story will follow events that lead to his arrest. Abarnathi of Enga Veetu Mappillai fame plays the leading lady. The project has already gone on the floors; however, the makers have kept the rest of the cast under wraps. Apparently, Balan had planned this project with some other hero but when things didnâ€™t work out, he roped in Prakash, who is thrilled to be part of this project.
Interestingly, Prakash and Balan had worked together over a decade ago in the latterâ€™s National award-winning Tamil film Veyyil, which had music by Prakash. Jail, which will be wrapped up in a few days, also has music by Prakash.
Prakash, on the other hand, has a bunch of projects in his kitty. Last seen on screen in the rural drama Sema, he will be teaming up with Siddharth for a yet untitled project. To be directed by Pichaikkaran fame Sasi, this film is rumoured to be a romantic comedy. Upon wrapping up Vasanthabana's project, Prakash will commence on his next film with director Sasi.
Prakash also has a project with Adhik Ravichandran. He awaits the release of films such as Adangathey, 4G, Kuppathu Raja, and Ayngaran, apart from the Tamil remakes of Telugu films 100 % Love, Ekkadiki Pothavu Chinnavada and Rajiv Menonâ€™s musical drama Sarvam Thaala Mayam, in which he plays a musician. On the music front, his next project will be Suriya-Sudha's Kongara.
