Anushka, who lost many kgs of weight and became slim recently, was rumoured to act opposite Madhavan in a bilingual project. It has been confirmed now.
Kona Venkat and Gopi Mohan have written the story and screenplay of the film which is tipped to be a silent thriller. Anjali, Shalini Pandey and Subharaju play key roles in this yet untitled movie.
While Gopi Sunder will compose music, Bob Brown of The Predators, The Wall, and Transformers fame will be choreographing the action sequences. Shaniel Deo who worked in two Telugu action thrillers Kshanam and Goodachari will be cranking the camera for the film.
Cosmos Entertainments and Kiran Studios produce the movie, while People Media Factory will present it. Meanwhile, Madhavan has completed the Russia shooting schedule of his maiden directorial venture Rocketry: The Nambi Effect.
Madhavan, who uploaded a video from the location, posted, “It’s a SCHEDULE WRAP…Finished the Russia shoot .. 5 days ahead of time … at -10 Deg C. Thank you my super awesome Unit..”
The project was initially being directed by Ananth Mahadevan and Madhavan. However recently, Madhavad announced he would solely direct the project.
Madhavan said in a statement: “Ananth Mahadevan is an extremely talented filmmaker. However, owing to unavoidable circumstances and certain pressing commitments he could no longer direct Rocketry – The Nambi Effect.”
He added: “Rocketry is close to my heart for many reasons. The film is shaping up well and I can’t wait to tell the incredible story of Nambi Narayanan to the world.”
