Ashwin and Pugazh, known for participating in the hit reality TV show Cooku with Comali, are coming together for a film. Ad-filmmaker Hari is making his feature debut with this untitled film that is said to be a romcom. 

"Ashwin is playing the protagonist and Pugazh will be his best friend. The film will follow the tried-and-tested trope of the hero's best friend helping him with his relationship and it will be a feel-good urban entertainer," says Hari, adding that the film will be shot completely in Chennai and will go on floors towards the end of May. "It will be a musically-driven film and we will be announcing the composer and the rest of the cast and crew soon." 

Bankrolled by Trident Arts Production, the makers are planning on roping in a fresh face for the female lead.

Meanwhile, Pugazh is also part of Sivakarthikeyan's Don,  Silamabarasan's Maanadu, and Arun Vijay's AV 33
