Filmmaker Venkat Prabhu, who is gearing up to commence shooting for his next directorial venture Manaadu with Simbu, might direct a web series in the interim for streaming giant Hotstar, according to reports.
The reports also indicate that Kajal Aggarwal might join hands with Prabhu for this project which is expected to be officially announced very soon. Apparently, Prabhu had originally planned to shoot this script as a film but later felt itâ€™d be more suited as in a web series format that are currently in vogue. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised soon and the project is expected to take off from August.
Prabhu will have to commence shooting for Manaadu from October or November as Simbu is currently busy shooting for the yet-untitled Tamil remake of Mufti which also co-stars Gautham Karthik.
In preparation for his role in Manaadu, Simbu recently returned from London after shedding a lot of weight. The film will star Kalyani Priyadarshan as the leading lady. The rest of the cast and crew will be finalised shortly. Itâ€™s worth mentioning that Prabhu had planned to work with Simbu for a long time. However, things never fell in place as both of them were caught up with their commitments.
Meanwhile, Kajal Aggarwal is busy with a slew of projects, two of her films â€“ Ranarangam in Telugu and Comali in Tamil â€“ will be hitting the marquee on the same day. Both these films are gearing up for release on August 15 to coincide with the Indian Independence Day.
Last seen on screen in Telugu film Teja, this collaboration with Prabhu will marks Kajalâ€™s digital debut. Kajal also has Kamal Haasanâ€™s Indian 2 in the pipeline apart from an English project with actor Vishnu Manchu.
