Yogi Babu turns ghost for first adult horror film to be shot in 3D
The film has Yashikaa Anand and Nikki Tamboli playing the female leads
Yogi Babu and Yashikaa Anand, who are currently shooting for Zombie, an adventure comedy by director Bhuvan R Nullan, are all set to team up again for an adult horror-comedy to be shot entirely in 3D, a first for Indian cinema. The visual effects will be handled by the technicians who worked on Rajinikanth’s 2.0.
Vinayak Shiva, who debuts as a director with this yet-to-be-titled film, says that he would rather label his maiden venture as a 'naughty' horror-comedy than an adult-film. "I was very particular that not to end up being offensive or derogatory while writing the script. There will be lots of perky fun and atypical scares, but not at the cost of hurting anyone," he adds.
Yogi Babu, who has become the staple of Tamil horror-comedies in recent times, is playing a ghost in Vinayak's film. However, the filmmaker is quick to state that the comedian's character, unlike in his earlier films, will be more sinister and ruthless. "The character goes on a vengeful killing spree. In many ways, you could say he is playing a negative character with a comical twist."
While Yashikaa Anand and Nikki Tamboli play the female leads, a debutant actor will play the former's pair. The film, which is expected to go on floors in the third week of January, will likely hit the screens in the summer.
