She added: “@rtheprotagonist @gokul_benoy @ashokstylist27 Renu and the whole bunch of wonderful asst directors u all made it more special and memorable😊 Mafia will always remain close to my heart for so many obvious reasons. Love you all ❤️ PS: inspite of all the fun it’s still a serious movie 😐 #Mafia.”

Tipped to be an action thriller ‘Mafia’ has Arun Vijay playing the protagonist and Prasanna is said to be the villain. Meanwhile, sources said Priya has signed the dotted line for Chiyaan Vikram’s big-budget action thriller which will be directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu of Imaikkaa Nodigal fame.

Referred to as #Vikram58, the film, an action thriller, will be made in three languages — Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The movie will have musical score by A R Rahman.

The film will be produced by Lalith’s 7 Screen Studios and Viacom 18. Arun K Viswa, creative producer of the film, said, “We are big fans of ARR sir’s music. Ajay, too, is a huge fan of Rahman. When the discussion regarding music came about, all of us unanimously said Rahman’s name.

But we were hesitant to approach him as he’s become very choosy about his projects. Also, he’s always collaborated with big names and we are a young team. We gave it a try anyway and got an opportunity to meet him.”
