Rahul Dev and Dev Gill to play the baddies in Jai's Breaking News
While the film's first schedule, which lasted 20 days, was recently wrapped up, the second schedule will see the team shooting in Mumbai, and parts of Europe
We had earlier reported that Jai will play a superhero in debutant director Andrew Pandian's fantasy drama, titled Breaking News. Now, we learn that Rahul Dev and Dev Gill have been roped in as the antagonists for the super-hero film.
Speaking about their inclusion, Andrew says, "We needed two stars, who could fit the role of corporate billionaire brothers with the potential to change the fate of our country. We also wanted them to be well known in the South. So, we zeroed in on Rahul Dev and Dev Gill as they've worked alongside Ajith (Vedhalam) and Vijay (Sura) respectively. While the elder brother character, played by Rahul, will be someone with exceptional intelligence, Dev's character will get what he wants with his brawn. Their actions will take our country backward by two decades. Someone with an IQ far more than a regular human (Jai) has to save the day."
While the film's first schedule, which lasted 20 days, was recently wrapped up, the second schedule will see the team shooting in Mumbai, and parts of Europe. Starring Bhanu Sree of Telugu Bigg Boss Season 2 as the female lead, the CGI heavy film is produced by Norway-based producer, K Thirukadal Udhayam. Breaking News also has cinematography by Johny Lal and editing by Antony.
