Still of Shiva in Idiot

RJ-turned-actor ‘Mirchi’ Shiva has never failed to impress his audience with his unique acting and comedy skills. Thus, his fans have high expectations from his upcoming new horror comedy flick titled Idiot, which is directed by Rambhala of Dhilluku Dhuddu fame. The actor will be seen romancing Nikki Galrani in the upcoming movie.

The production house of Idiot, Screen Scene Entertainment took to social media today to announce the upcoming Shiva starrer with a poster that features the actor carrying a battered ghost in a wheelbarrow. The caption that said, “Ini than aarambam” accompanied with “Haunting begins,” has piqued the anticipation of all the Shiva fans for the release of the upcoming horror-comedy flick. However, the poster just reads that the film will be out this month but does not provide the exact date.

Director Rambhala had already forayed into the area of horror-comedy movies while working with Santhanam in Dhilluku Dhuddu and its sequel. This time, we will get to see Shiva’s performance under the mind-blowing direction of Rambhala in the upcoming film Idiot.

The film will feature the collaboration of Shiva and Nikki Galrani for the first time. The trailer of the ghost spoof shows Nikki possessed by some spirit and saying the popular one-liner of Kamal Haasan from Bigg Boss Tamil, Aarambikalama (shall we start), making it a little scary and funny at the same time. Nikki carries an experience of working in the area of horror- comedy. She has worked in GV Prakash’s Darling that came out in 2015.

The rest of the cast of the upcoming movie includes Anandraj, Oorvasi, Akshara Gowda, Mayilsamy, Singamuthu, Ravi Mariya and Kingsly. Raja Bhattacharjee has cranked up the cameras for the horror-comedy flick, with Videsh as the art director. Soundtrack of the movie is composed by Vikram Selva. The rest of the crew of Idiot comprises Madhavan as the editor and Abhinaya K as the costume designer.

Meanwhile, ‘Mirchi’ Shiva has a number of movies under his belt that includes Sumo, Venkat Prabhu’s Party, Saloon with Yogi Babu and the rehash of the classic movie Kasethan Kadavulada.
