PC Shekar’s upcoming thriller to feature Prajwal Devaraj as cab driver
The director is collaborating with The Terrorist producer Alankar Pandian for the second time; project will go on floors by end of December or early next year
It was rumoured in the inner circles that actor Prajwal Devaraj would be teaming up with director PC Shekar for the second time, after Arjuna. Confirming this, Shekar tells Cinema Express that preparations are underway, and shooting for the film will begin either from December 25 or January 1. The director also reveals that he has finalised the script.
Alankar Pandian, who produced The Terrorist, will be collaborating with PC Shekar once again to bankroll the film under the banner Invenio Films India, the production arm of Invenio Origin FZC, Dubai.
Meanwhile, The Terrorist is being remade in Bollywood, and the Hindi version is likely to have Sonam Kapoor playing the protagonist, in place of Ragini Dwivedi in the original.
PC Shekar has taken reference from a real-time incident that took place over four hours to conceive his upcoming film. This subject, which is thus close to reality, will feature Prajwal in the role of a cab driver. “It’s going to be a thriller that is fast-paced with a non-linear structure, which will be a highlight. Prajwal will be seen in a new character, in terms of make-up and overall personality. The actor currently has a few commitments to complete, after which we will be working on his look, and design his character before we head to the shoot,” says Shekar.
The makers are planning to bring on board music director Arjun Janya. “We have worked together in seven films, and I will be teaming up with him for my eighth film. I plan to bring out an exceptional album,” says the director.
Prajwal Devaraj’s current line up of films also includes a project with director Ram Narayan, Arjun Gowda, Inspector Vikram, and Veeram.
