Madhavan, Shraddha team up again
After their successful collaboration in Vikram Vedha, Madhavan and Shraddha Srinath will be seen together once again in a romantic drama set in a coastal region. Directed by newbie Dhilip Kumar, the film is about the relationship between an older man and a younger woman.
Dhilip tells CE, "I directed Kalki (available on Netflix), which was produced by Pramod Films. They put me in touch with Madhavan. We first met in Chennai, and I narrated the story to him. It's not because of Vikram Vedha that we're bringing them together, but because I felt Shraddha will be apt for this role." The director says Madhavan will play his age in the film. "After a long time, he'll be seen in a romantic drama without thriller shades," he adds, clarifying that it's not a typical love story. "There's a 10-year difference between Madhavan and Shraddha in the story, but it is not dwelt on much."
The shooting will start around the end of this month in Chennai, and the makers will head to Puducherry next. "We are planning to finish the film in 45 days. Ghibran has been roped in to compose music," says Dhilip.
