The director's upcoming movie will have Dhruv Vikram playing the lead
AR Rahman and Mari Selvaraj
It is known that Udhayanidhi Stalin will team up with Mari Selvaraj after the latter's project with Dhruv Vikram which is yet to go on floors. The untitled film which will be based on kabaddi will be the director's third project after Pariyerum Perumal and Karnan (both streaming on Amazon Prime Video).
His fourth movie is said to have Fahadh playing an antagonist and Vadivelu essaying a crucial character in it. The film, we hear, will commence after Dhruv's project and Udhayanidhi's Nenjukku Neethi, which is the remake of Article 15 (streaming on Netflix), are wrapped up.
The latest on the project is that Keerthy Suresh is in talks to play the female lead in it and none other than AR Rahman will compose music for it. Santhosh Narayanan was the composer for both the movies of Selvaraj and it is expected that the young composer will score tunes for Dhruv-starrer as well.
Vadivelu is making a comeback to tinsel town with Naai Sekar Returns under the direction of Suraj. The ace comedian had earlier said that he has signed around five projects. It has to be seen which among those will first hit the screens. Meanwhile, Sathish's film, which has also been titled Naai Sekar, is also in the pipeline.
On the other hand, Fahadh will next be seen in Lokesh Kanagaraj's Vikram which is expected to be a theatrical release in April. The movie will be Malayalam actor's third project in Kollywood after Mohan Raja's Velaikkaran (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) and Thiagarajan Kumararaja's Super Deluxe (streaming on Netflix).
Udhayanidhi, who was last seen in Mysskin's critically acclaimed flick Psycho (streaming on Netflix), has three more movies in his kitty, including Angel and Kannai Nambathey.
