Filmmaker Mysskin, known for helming critically acclaimed projects such as Anjaathe, Yuddham Sei and Thupparivaalan, was recently seen playing the antagonist in the dark comedy Savarakathi, which also starred filmmaker Ram in the lead.
Even though most critics and audiences found Mysskinâ€™s performance to be over-the-top at times, it worked well with the mood of the film. The filmmaker has now signed one more film in which he will be seen playing the baddie. To be directed by debutant Arun Matheswaran, the yet-untitled project will feature Vasanth Ravi, who made his debut via Taramani last year, in the lead role.
According to a report, Vasanth Ravi said: â€śIâ€™ve known Arun for about a year. He was having this script for many years. It has gone to many stars and has finally landed with me, so Iâ€™m fortunate that way. Arun had first narrated a love story, but then he told me that I should do this script. I was hesitant because he had written it as a star film and I was unsure if it would suit me. He convinced me saying that anyone would suit this script and made me believe that I would be right for the role. Itâ€™s an action film, so different from Taramani; in fact, among the many offers that Iâ€™ve received post Taramani, only a couple of them were action scripts. I wasnâ€™t convinced with those, but I liked this one a lot. Mysskin sir is doing the antagonistâ€™s role.â€ť
Ravi also confirmed that Darbuka Siva has been roped in to compose music. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon.
On the filmmaking end, Mysskin recently announced that his next project will be with actor Shanthanu. PC Sreeram has been confirmed to crank the camera for this project, which is expected to roll from July.
