Urvi director BS Pradeep Varma and actor Prabhu Mundkur are teaming up for a romantic drama titled Murphy, and they have finalised Nishivika Naidu as the film’s heroine. The Amma I Love You and Padde Huli actor was last seen in Gentleman, starring Prajwal Devaraj.
For Nishvika, who will also be seen in an important role in Gaalipata 2, this is the only project in hand. The team has officially confirmed that she is coming on board.
Murphy’s script has been penned by Pradeep Varma and co-written by actor Prabhu Mundkur. This film will bring the fresh combination of Prabhu Mundkur and Nishvika on the screen for the first time.
Somanna, who is associated with Vikram Ravichandran’s Trivikrama, will be producing Murphy. The makers are currently doing the preparation work for the project and will take it on floors from January 14, 2021.
This is the fourth collaboration between Prabhu Mundkur and the director. The duo had earlier come together for Urvi, which was their debut. They followed it with Brahmi, starring Suman Nagarkar and Anoosha Shankar. The two have also teamed up for The Fallen, which is now in the post-production stage and will be released on Netflix. Murphy will be their fourth project.
The team will also include Naveen Reddy, the director of films like Akira and Relax Satya, who will be writing the dialogues. Cinematographer Yogi will be cranking the camera for the film.
