Kaatteri will be a special Tamil debut: Aadi
The film directed by Deekay will have Oviya as one of the four female leads
Telugu actor Aadi Sai Kumar, who is set to foray into Tamil filmdom with the upcoming horror thriller Kaatteri, says the project will be a special debut.
Best known for his work in Telugu films such as Sukumarudu and Shamanthakamani, Aadi is excited about his Tamil debut. "It's going to be a special debut. Need to thank my producer Gnanavel for introducing me to Tamil audiences. He got me this offer and suggested that it's time I venture into a new industry. I really liked the script, so I thought why not," Aadi says.
To be directed by Deekay, the project will be bankrolled by Studio Green, which is also the banner behind Aadi's upcoming Telugu horror-comedy Next Nuvve.
Talking about the film, Deekay says, "This is not a horror film, though it has horror elements. This is an adventurous film with a hint of fantasy. The film will have a period portion as well. The story will go back and forth in time, the 1960s to be precise."
On signing Aadi as the hero, he says, "His next Telugu film is the remake of my Tamil film Yaamirukka Bayamey. He was perfect for the role in this film."
Oviya has been signed on as the leading lady. Deekay has confirmed the film will have three more heroines.
