Rangoli to be a school-based drama
Debutants Prarthana and Hamaresh, the nephew of filmmaker Vijay will be playing the lead roles
A new Tamil-Telugu bilingual titled Rangoli is in the works. The film was formally launched recently. Directed by Vaali Mohan Das, Rangoli is billed as a family drama set against the backdrop of school life, and predominantly features newcomers in prominent roles. Debutants Prarthana and Hamaresh, the nephew of filmmaker Vijay will be playing the lead roles.
Speaking about the film, director Vaali shares, "The film revolves around school students and will explore a father-child relationship as well. However, it won't be sentimental in its treatment." The director adds that the team is planning to go on floors by May and wrap the filming in 25 days. "Considering the film has great scope for music, I want to spend more time perfecting the soundtrack. We are aiming to release the film by October."
Rangoli is bankrolled by K Babu Reddy and G Satish Kumar through Gopuram studios. Further details related to the film, including other cast and crew will be announced shortly.
