Jayam Ravi, who is currently busy with Komaali, has reportedly signed a deal to star in a movie that will be directed by I Ahmed. This film is likely to be bankrolled by Screen Scene Entertainment and we hear that that star signed three films with the production house.

Director I Ahmed began his career with Vamanan in 2009 and directed Endrendrum Punnagai with Jiiva and Trisha in the lead. His last outing was the Udhayanidhi starrer Manithan, a couple of years ago.

Meanwhile, Komaali is progressing well. It is touted to be a comedy-drama produced by Vels Film International. The film is written and directed by Pradeep Ranganathan, a newbie. It stars Jayam Ravi, Kajal Aggarwal and Samyuktha Hegde in the lead roles.

The star cast also includes KS Ravikumar, Yogi Babu and Kavita Radheshyam in supporting roles. Hip Hop Thamizha is composing the tunes for this flick with Girish Gangadharan cranking the camera and Praveen KL in charge of the editing.

Ravi has signed a three-film deal with the production house, Screen Scene Media Entertainment Pvt Ltd,  who have been associated with films like Sandakozhi 2, Thadam, Neeya and Iruttu.

The actor himself confirmed the news via his Twitter handle. He tweeted saying, "Excited to announce that I’ve signed a 3-film deal with the young & vibrant media house @Screensceneoffl. Looking forward to a wonderful partnership and some great content. More updates on the projects soon. God bless!"

It may be noted here that Komaali is his 24th film popularly referred as JR 24. This means his next with I Ahmed will be his landmark 25th film.
