Kathir, Narain, and Natty team up for Yuki
The film is a Tamil-Malayalam bilingual
Actors Kathir, Narain, and Natty have joined forces for Yuki, directed by debutant filmmaker Zac Harriss. The film is Tamil-Malayalam bilingual with Sharaf U Dheen and Joju George stepping into the shoes of Kathir and Natty, respectively, in the Malayalam version, while Narain reprises his role in both versions. “Yuki is both a drama and thriller. It has a script filled with suspense and mystery. However, the film won’t be dark and violent like other thrillers,” says director Zac Harriss.
Speaking of simultaneously shooting the Tamil and Malayalam versions, Zac adds, “It felt like we were shooting two different films. We understand that the sensibilities of Tamil and Malayalam viewers are different and to suit their taste, we handled the Malayalam version in a slightly different way; we even changed certain locations for the Malayalam version to achieve this.”
The film, which entered production in February, is nearing completion. Yuki also stars Pavithra Lakshmi, Kayal Anandhi, and Athmiya Rajan. Pakiyaraj Ramalingam has written the film, while Pushparaj Santhosh has handled the cinematography. Produced by Juvis Productions in association with UAN Film House and AAAR Productions, the release date of the film is expected to be announced soon.
