Filmmaker Arivazhagan, whose last directorial outing Kuttram 23 was well received by audiences and critics alike, is busy setting up his next project. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, he is in talks with leading Malayalam actress Manju Warrier for his next project.

Apparently, he has been working on a woman-centric thriller and it might feature Manju in the titular role. Although the filmmaker remains tight-lipped about his cast or the genre of the film, sources close to the project have confirmed that he has commenced talks with Manju.

According to an article by Times of India, after Kuttram 23, the director has been scripting a thriller, which will be a women-centric film. “The team had approached Manju and she really liked the script. Looks like she's most likely to sign on the dotted line soon.” The film, as expected, will be a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual and is likely to roll from next month. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon.

In the past, Manju has said that language won’t be a barrier for her and she will always be ready to explore opportunities outside the Malayalam industry. It would be interesting to see if she signs this project and forays into Kollywood. The project, according to the source, will be a joint venture between two production houses and will be made on a high budget.
