Nayanthara and Prabhu Deva, who had worked together in films including Vijay starrer Villu, were in relationship too. However, they parted ways later. Recently, there was a buzz that Nayanthara’s next film will be helmed by Prabhudheva.
Reports said that the project in question is Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja. It was first announced in 2017 with Karthi and Vishal but it was shelved. They added that Prabhudheva wants to begin working on this project soon.
“While Karthi will still be part of the film, looks like the makers are making changes in the original script. Apparently, they have given Vishal’s character a gender swap. Now the role is bagged by Nayanthara,” they said.
But the film’s producer Ishari K Ganesh has said that the film Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja has been shelved and that Nayanthara and Prabhudheva are in no way associated with the film.
It was previously reported that Sayyeshaa Saigal was finalized to play the female lead. The producer was planning to utilize the profits made by the film if it were made to build an office for the South Indian Film Artistes Association.
Nayanthara’s relationship with Prabhudheva was one of the most talked-about affairs in the industry and the actress even quit her acting career to marry him. However, before the wedding, they split, and post their break-up they have not come together for any projects.
