Udhayanidhi Stalin, Aathmika team up for a crime thriller

The project has been titled 'Kannai Nambathe' and will be directed by Mu Maaran.

Udhayanidhi Stalin, who is gearing up for the release of Kanne Kalaimanne later this month, has an interesting line up of projects. He has now signed a new project titled Kannai Nambathe with director Mu Maaran, who made his directorial debut last year with Iravukku Aayiram Kangal.

Tipped to a crime-thriller, the yet-untitled film also features Aathmika, who made her acting debut in Meesaya Murukku, as the leading lady. The film went on the floors earlier this week and it also stars Sathish in a crucial role. Sam CS has been roped in to compose music. 

He recently completed shooting for Mysskin’s Psycho, and if the industry grapevine is anything to go by, the film will see him essaying the role of a psycho. The project, which marks the first time collaboration of Stalin and Mysskin, also stars Aditi Rao Hydari. The film has music by Ilaiyaraaja while popular lensman PC Sreeram has cranked the camera.

The Manithan star is apparently thrilled about Psycho. “This is the first time that Udhay is teaming up with Mysskin, and he wanted this film to be a very special one. The actor has become choosy with his scripts and wants to move away from doing regular rom-coms or commercial ventures. That’s why he was kicked about Mysskin’s script. The film has been titled Psycho, and the shooting will begin end of this month. Maestro Ilayaraja will compose the music, while PC Sreeram will crank the camera,” a source was quoted in the Times of India.

It’s worth mentioning that recently actor Mythreya approached the Madras High Court and got a stay that  Mysskin can’t make the film with any other actor other than Mythreya. As Mysskin allegedly broke an agreement to cast Mythreya as the lead for Psycho which went to Udhayanidhi later. With 60% of the film being completed, this has put the director into deep trouble.
