Actor Vaibhav's next launched
The film will be helmed by Vikram Rajeshwar and Arun Keshav in their directorial debut
Actor Vaibhav, who was last seen in the 2022 film Buffoon, will be pairing up with actor Athulya Ravi, for an upcoming Tamil comedy film which is yet-to-be-titled.
The film will be helmed by Vikram Rajeshwar and Arun Keshav in their directorial debut. Both of them have directed advertisements earlier. Vikram is son of writer and director K Rajeshwar who has worked as writer in films like Kadalora Kavidhaigal, Paneer Pushpangal, Seevelaperi Pandi, Vetri Vizha, to name a few.
Backed by Bobby Balachandran under his home banner BTG Universal, the film was launched on Tuesday, with the film going on floors on Wednesday.
Speaking to CE, Vikram, who was previously an advertisement filmmaker, said, “This will be a comedy film revolving around a robbery. The film is set against the backdrop of Chennai and will happen in a span of 3-4 months. I had read an article that happened in abroad. Though the instance was serious, I wanted to put a humourous spin to it.” Vaibhav will be playing the role of an “average north Madras guy”, the director added.
The film will be shot in and around Chennai and the makers are looking to wrap up by December. A release date is yet to be planned. “We have planned 35 days of shoot, split into two schedules,” he added.
The upcoming film also stars Anandraj, Rajendran, John Vijay, Redin Kingsley, Sunil Reddy, Ilavarasu, PL Thenappan and others in supporting roles. The film will mark the first time brothers Vaibhav and Sunil will be sharing screen space. The technical crew consists of D Imman scoring the music, while Tijo Tomy and Suresh A Prasad have been roped in as the cinematographer and editor respectively. Arun Shankar Durai is doing the art direction and stunts handled by Don Ashok.
