Venkat Prabhu's Maanadu, starring STR, will go on floors in May
Recently, rumours were rife that the film had been shelved because of a disagreement between STR and the director
Last year, Venkat Prabhu had announced that he will be joining hands with Simbu aka STR for a film, titled Maanadu. Recently, rumours were rife that the film had been shelved because of a disagreement between STR and the director. But, the producer of the film, Suresh Kamatchi, recently took to Twitter to announce that the project is very much on.
Venkat Prabhu has now announced that the film will go on floors from May. A source close to the unit attributes the delay in starting the shoot to STR's visit to the US, which the actor was very particular about, to get into shape for the role. "The shoot will start as soon as he returns," he adds.
Venkat Prabhu had earlier revealed on Twitter that Kalyani Priyadarshan, daughter of famed director Priyadarshan, will be playing the female lead. This is the first time that STR and Venkat Prabhu are collaborating on a film. While the filmmaker is currently involved in the post-production of Party, Simbu has recently signed the Tamil remake of Mufti, where he will be seen alongside Gautham Karthik.
