Radhika Kumaraswamy is known to be very selective about her film projects and only takes up ventures that interest her immensely. One such film that seems to have caught her fancy happens to be Bhairadevi. The film will be helmed by director Srijai of RX Soori fame, which had Duniya Vijay in the lead.
Bhairadevi will have Ramesh Aravind playing the male lead. With both Ramesh Aravind as well as Radhika being well-known names in the Tamil and Telugu film circuits, Bhairadevi will be made in Kannada, Tamil and Telugu languages, say sources. Apart from Ramesh Aravind and Radhika, the film will also feature Anu Prabhakar and Skanda Ashok in the star cast. Sources close to the film unit say that Bhairadevi will be a thriller but a complete family entertainer.
Radhika Kumaraswamy made her acting debut with the 2002 release Ninagagi and went on to act in movies like Neela Megha Shyama, Prema Qaidi, Iyarkai, Bhadradri Ramudu, and Navashakthi Vaibhava. She was last seen on the silver screens in Rudra Tandava in 2015, which starred Chiranjeevi Sarja in the lead role. She currently has films like Kontract and Rajendra Ponnappa in her kitty in different stages of production.
On the other hand, Ramesh Aravind is busy with the post-production of his upcoming directorial Butterfly, which has Parul Yadav in the lead. Incidentally, the film is the remake of the Hindi blockbuster Queen, a comedy drama, which was directed by Vikas Bhal and starred Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. Amy Jackson is reprising the role done by Lisa Haydon in the original.
Ramesh Aravind is also directing the Tamil version of the film titled Paris Paris with Kajal Agarwal in the lead. While Butterfly is slated for release in March, the Tamil version of the film will be out in June this year.
