Director PS Mithran, who made a big splash last year with Vishal’s Irumbu Thirai, is all set to join hands with Sivakarthikeyan for his next project. The project, which will be bankrolled by 24 AM Studios, was officially announced last November and it was confirmed that the film will also star Arjun Sarja in a crucial role. On Tuesday, it was officially announced via a poster that the project will mark the Tamil debut of Kalyani Priyadarshan, daughter of veteran filmmaker Priyadarshan.
Mithran and Siva had previously worked on a short film and have been planning to work together on a feature film for quite some time now. They were even supposed to work on a project even before Irumbu Thirai.
In a chat with Times of India last year, Mithran said: “I’d written a story for him long ago, and we were supposed to do a film even before Irumbu Thirai released, sometime in 2017. After the release of my film, we met and decided to work together. This project will be a racy thriller. That’s how I’ve planned it for now. Just like Irumbu Thirai, this film will also have a social message.” George C Williams has been confirmed to crank the camera.
Siva currently awaits the release of Mr Local, his next film with director M Rajesh. He also has a science-fiction film with Ravi Kumar.
Earlier this week, Siva took to Twitter to announce that he has resumed shooting for Ravikumar’s project, which was rumoured to be put on hold due to budget constraints. This film also stars Rakul Preet Singh as an astronomer.
His last rural entertainer Seemaraja which had hit the screens last year did poorly at the box office.
