Vidharth to play a cop in his next
Directed by debutant filmmaker Manimaran Natrajan, the film is produced by Green Native Films
Actor Vidharth, who was recently seen in Payanigal Gavanikkavum, will next star in a yet-to-be-titled thriller.
Directed by debutant filmmaker Manimaran Natarajan, the film, which was launched today, is backed by Green Native Films.
Speaking about the film, Manimaran says, “It revolves around a police investigation and is a psycho-thriller with a sense of realism. Vidharth plays a cop in the film, which will be grounded and lively. We haven't taken too much cinematic liberty.”
The film is written by Srinivasan Sundar, who is also penning the screenplay and dialogues. On collaborating with Srinivasan, the debutant filmmaker says, “He had written a novel called Dancing With Maharaja and I was working on a script based on it. About two years back, after seeing how I approached the script, he and the production house contacted me to direct this script.”
“I was working on a script on my own, but I realised that I had to gain more experience before I finalise my script. Hence, I started to work on this when I got the opportunity,” adds Manimaran.
The film is set to go on floors from the third week of August and it is expected to be completed by December. “The reason we are taking this gap before filming is because Vidharth has many get-ups in the film. We have roped in make-up artist Pattanam Rasheed to work on the looks,” says Manimaran. The director added that the team is looking to cast a new face for the female lead but clarified that Vidharth doesn't have a romantic interest in the film.
With cinematography by SR Satish Kumar, the film will be shot completely in Chennai. Ghibran is composing the music and the director shares that the film will have only one theme song. Nagooran Ramachandran who cut films like Don and Saani Kaayidham, will be editing the film, which has Dinesh Subbarayan as the stunt coordinator.
