Lyca signs Udhayanidhi for a thriller

Udhayanidhi Stalin, who was hitherto acting in his own acting ventures, is for the first time set to play the lead role in a film to be produced by a different company.

Lyca Productions, which is bankrolling Superstar Rajinikanth’s 2.0 and Kamal Haasan’s Sabaash Naidu, has come forward to produce Udhayanidhi’s upcoming heroic venture, which will be directed by Gaurav of Thoonganagaram fame.

According to sources, the yet untitled movie will be a thriller, loaded with comedy, fantasy and other elements.

Only recently, a project starring Udhayanidhi was put on hold for sometime, as director Suseenthiran has begun working on another project, it may be recalled.

As it is a multi-starrer, there was some confusion regarding the dates of the artistes involved. But the film has not been completely dropped, sources said.

Megha Aakash, who is making her debut with director Balaji Tharaneetharan’s Oru Pakka Kathai, was set to play the romantic interest of Vishnu Vishal in this yet-to-be-named movie.

Manjima Mohan, who is working with Simbu in Gautham Vasudev Menon-directed Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada was said to be the pair of Udhayanidhi Stalin.

According to sources, the friendship between Udhayanidhi and Vishnu Vishal is the central theme of the movie. “The two will play best pals in this flick set in rural backdrop,” they had added.
