A Superstar title for Prashanth
The actor's next film, to be produced by his father, is titled Johnny
Prashanth, whose last outing was Saagasam, has signed his next, Johnny, produced by his producer-father Thiagarajan. Directed by newbie Vetriselvan, who previously assisted Jeeva Shankar, the film shares its title with Rajinikanth's yesteryear blockbuster. According to sources, the makers have sought permission from the original team to use the same name. Mumbai-based girl Ananya Soni, has been brought on board for this film.
In an interview with CE a while ago, Thiagarajan had told us that Prashanth will also make his Bollywood re-entry with the remake of the Vijay Antony-starrer Naan. He'd said, "Vijay Antony and I acted in Yaman together, and we became good friends eventually. Before he approached me with an offer in Yaman, I had obtained the Hindi remake rights of Naan from Vijay."
