It is learnt from reliable sources that maverick director Karthik Subburaj has wrapped up the shooting of the Prabhu Deva starrer. While it was announced some months ago that the director will be teaming up with the National Award-winning actor Dhanush for his next, the project failed to take off for reasons best known to the filmmakers.
Eventually, Karthik decided to wield the megaphone for a quickie that had Prabhu Deva hop on board as the hero. While sources maintain the shooting has been completed and the film has gone into the post-production mode, there is no official word about the title, star cast and technicians yet.
Karthik Subburaj, a short film maker, made his debut with the feature film Pizza in 2012. This Vijay Sethupathi starrer turned out to be a huge hit and he topped it up with Jigarthanda, a couple of years later. Karthikâ€™s last outing at the theatres was Iraivi, which hit the marquee last year.
Having made his debut in 2012, Karthik has managed to don the directorâ€™s hat for four films in these five years and has successfully handled different genres ranging from mystery thriller, black comedy, crime and family drama. Music composer Santhosh Narayanan has composed music for all of Karthikâ€™s directorials so far and he has set the tunes for the upcoming Prabhu Deva starrer as well, say sources.
Prabhu Deva also has the MS Arjun directorial Yung Mung Sung, which went on the floors early this year apart from the Hindi flick Khamoshi, which is into the post-production mode. Despite his busy acting schedules, Prabhu Deva is wielding the megaphone for Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja that has Karthi and Vishal playing the lead roles.
Details about Karthik Subburajâ€™s film with Prabhu Deva are expected to be out shortly along with the release date.
