Jiivi fame Vetri's next to star KGF villain
The principal photography for the film started on Friday and the makers are planning to wrap up the film in a single schedule
Vetri, who made his debut with the critically acclaimed 8 Thottakkal and was recently seen in Jiivi, will next work on a thriller, directed by debutant Guru Ramanujam. The latest actor to join the cast of the yet-to-be-titled film is Ramachandra Raju, who played the villain in last year's hit Kannada film KGF. He will play the antagonist in the film, which went on floors on Friday.
"It will be an action thriller with enough elements to call it a commercial film. But it will also have an underlying message. We have spoken about something that has not been addressed yet in Tamil cinema," says director Guru, an erstwhile associate of Kazhugu-director Sathyasiva.
The makers are planning to wrap up the film in a single schedule. The film, bankrolled by J Parthasarrathy under his JN Cinemas banner, also stars debutante Diyaa Mayurikha, Marimuthu, and Kabali-fame Vishvanth. The project will be shot in and around Chennai.
