All about Arun Vijay-Prasanna-Karthick Naren’s Mafia

Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru director Karthick Naren’s third directorial film is all set to start rolling by the end of this week and it is going to be a high ocatne action drama.

Tentatively titled as Mafia, Arun Vijay will be playing the protagonist in the film and Prasanna is likely to be seen as the baddie.

Talking about the project, the director says, “At this juncture, all I can say is that Mafia will be a high-octane gangster drama.”

He adds: “I’d pitched this script to Arun Vijay after I finished writing the script. I met him right after Thadam and soon, things fell in place.”

Nivetha Pethuraj has been roped in to play the romantic interest of Arun Vijay in Mafia while the rest of the cast and crew will be revealed soon.

“The shooting will begin on July 6. “The story is set in the backdrop of Chennai and we have planned to shoot mostly in live locations,” he adds.

Meanwhile, on the delay of Karthick’s sophomore directorial Naragasooran, the film’s one of the lead actors Sundeep Kishan says “Whenever the film comes it will get a good response from the audiences because the content is very strong. I only hope that along with Kannadi, Naragasooran also hit the screens within this year”.
