Hansika, who was last seen in Tamil in 100 (streaming on Amazon Prime Video), has a few projects lined up in her kitty. We hear that she has signed another web series now, this time a Tamil project which is being directed by M Rajesh. The actress had teamed up with the director a decade ago for Oru Kal Oru Kannadi (streaming on Zee5, Jio Cinema and Sun NXT).

Though the makers have kept details pertaining to the project under wraps, it is heard that the series will be streaming on Disney+ Hotstar later this year. The actress had made her OTT debut earlier with the Telugu web series titled Nasha which is yet to drop online.

Rajesh's last outing, Vanakkam Da Mappilei, starring GV Prakash in the lead, had a direct release on Sun NXT a year ago. The filmmaker's last theatrical release was Sivakarthikeyan-starrer Mr Local (streaming on MX Player and Jio Cinema). He currently also has The Victim, an anthology which is expected to release soon.

He was supposed to do a project each with Santhanam and Jiiva, but those didn't materialize because of reasons best known to him. In an earlier chat with OTTplay, the director had told us that Jiiva had okayed the script and that an announcement will be made soon.

On the other hand, Hansika has Partner, Rowdy Baby, My Name is Shruthi, 105 Minutes and Maha apart from a project each with R Kannan and Vijay Chandar. She was recently seen in the Punjabi independent album Shream Pagal which had voice lent by Sunidhi Chauhan. 

Her 50th film Maha was embroiled in a controversy after its producer and director couldn't sort out differences with regard to the latter's payment. The film, which has Silambarasan playing a cameo, was supposed to release earlier this year.
