Shalini Pandey, the female actor who made quite a controversial debut with Arjun Reddy, is currently the toast of the town as she is on a roll and is constantly signing projects.
After bagging a plum role in the bilingual film Savitri, the biopic on legendary southern actress Savitri, and the Tamil remake of Telugu film 100 % Love, which has been titled 100 % Kaadhal, she has now signed a yet-untitled comedy heist thriller opposite Jiiva, who is basking in the success of horror-comedy Sangili Bungili Kathavu Thorae.
The makers of the film, made the official announcement on Tuesday and said that the project will kick-off early next year.
To be directed by Don Sandy, the film will have music by Sam CS, who made a splash with Vikram Vedha this year.
The team also confirmed that a big surprise awaits the audience. This will be Shalini’s third Tamil outing and there are also rumours that she might be eventually signed for Varma, the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy, which marks the debut of Vikram’s son Dhruv.
Initially, Lavanya Tripathi was originally signed for 100% Kaadhal. However, delay in the commencement of the project forced her to exit as her dates with other projects were clashing. Apparently, she tried to adjust her dates but as the film didn’t take off as planned in August, she was left with no option than to walk out.
Even before Lavanya, Vanamagan fame Sayyeshaa was considered for the project and the makers even approached her but she turned down the offer.
100% Kaadhal is being directed by debutant Chandra Mouli, former associate of Sukumar who directed 100% Love. The original film was a blockbuster and it starred Naga Chaitanya and Tamannaah Bhatia in the lead roles.
