Chellam sir Udhay Mahesh returns to direction, GV Prakash to play the lead

Disney+Hotstar is venturing into theatrical film production along with Kavithalayaa Productions and its first Tamil film will star GV Prakash in the lead. Directed by Udhay Mahesh, who rose to fame for playing Chellam sir in The Family Man, the film stars Anaswara Rajan as the female lead. 

The yet-to-be-titled film went on floors today and is said to be a heart-warming family drama. "Devadarshini plays Prakash's sister in the film, and the story revolves around the bond he shares with his sister's daughter," shares Udhay, who is back to filmmaking after sixteen years. About getting back to direction, he says, "Post The Family Man recognition I started getting a lot of offers from Bollywood. I had to turn down six films to make time for my directorial. Working with Kavithalayaa was long due. I was supposed to make a film for them long ago, and a couple of my other projects failed to take off. But the COVID break gave me the time and space to pen this interesting script." 

The film has Flowers TV-fame Baby Meghana playing Prakash's Niece and it also stars Daniel Anne Pope, Subbu Panchu, Madhusudhan Rao and Namo Naryanan in important roles. 

We had previously reported that composer Hesham Abdul Wahab will be making his Tamil debut with a GV Prakash-starrer. Now it has been confirmed that the project is none another than the Udhay Mahahesh directorial. 

The film will be hitting the theatres next year and post the silver screen run it will make it is digital premiere on Disney+Hotstar.
