Yogi Babu's next titled Constable Nandhan

Actor-comedian Yogi Babu, who was last seen in Mohan's Haraa, is now set to headline a new film titled Constable Nandhan. Touted to be an emotional drama, the film will be helmed by Boobala Natesan in his debut directorial. The filmmaker, who has previously worked with Sundar C, Sasikumar, and Mu Kalanjiyam as an assistant director, is joining hands with the actor for the second time. They had earlier collaborated in the yet-to-be-released film Kuruvikkaran where he served as a co-director.

Elaborating on the plotline, director Boobala Natesan explains, "As the title suggests, Yogi Babu plays a simple police constable who can be described as the epitome of compassion. He is the ideal policeman you have ever met. In stark contrast, Ravi Maria essays Inspector Krishna Raj who is almost like a monster. You can never see another evil person like him. The film will follow their dynamics and struggles."

"The spark for the story came when I was speaking to a friend with whom I studied together in college," he adds, stating that he took inputs from a police officer he knew to understand the hierarchy in police stations and how cops are treated, to make the film realistically. Boobala Natesan also asserted that the film will stand out from Yogi Babu's filmography. "There would not be much space for comedy for Yogi Babu in the film. It will ride mostly on the emotional aspect of the story," he adds.

The film was officially launched at the Arunachaleswarar temple in Tiruvannamalai on Sunday. Constable Nandhan is scheduled to go on floors soon and the makers have planned a 35-day-long schedule in Chennai to complete filming.

Constable Nandhan is produced by D Shankar under his Shankar Productions banner. With pre-production for the film ongoing, the makers are still finalising the remaining cast and technical crew, and a tentative release date has not yet been disclosed.
