Choreographer-turned actor Prabhu Deva went on to become an acclaimed director with hits in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu to his credit. Though he was seen playing important roles in a few Kollywood films in the recent past, it has been six years since he has wielded the megaphone for a Tamil film.
The master is all set to return in style with the multi-starrer Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja. He has confirmed that the ball has been set rolling for this film which will have Vishal and Karthi playing the lead roles with Sayyesha roped in as the heroine.
Confirming that he is busy with the project, Prabhu Deva tweeted that he is flying off to London to work on its music with music composer Harris Jayaraj. His tweet along with a pic read: â€śTo London with Harris for Karuppu raja vellai raja.â€ť
The film has been written by late filmmaker K Subhash who had passed away last year. In an interview to IANS, Prabhu Deva had said, â€śWhen I met him last year, he told me he wasn't sure if he would be around to see the film. I told him everything is going to be alright. Unfortunately, he left us even before we could start the project. I would like to dedicate this film to him.â€ť Subash had directed films like Sathriyan, Bramma, and 123. He had also penned Bollywood films such as Sunday, Chennai Express, Diwale and Houseful.
Prabhu Deva made his directorial debut with the Telugu movie Nuvvostanante Nenoddantana, which was a smash hit and has directed several Hindi, Telugu and Tamil films since that. One of the most wanted directors in Bollywood, his last directorial was Singh is Bling in 2015. He was last seen on the big screen in Devi, which had Tammannah as his lead pair.
