It was announced last year that Hip Hop Tamizha will team up with Sathya Jyothi Films for the third time for a movie to be directed by ARK Saravan of Maragatha Nanayam (streaming on Zee5 and Disney+ Hotstar) fame. The actor-musician had earlier joined hands with the production house for Sivakumarin Sabadham and Anbarivu (both streaming on Disney+ Hotstar).
Their new project has now been titled Veeran; Hip Hop himself has taken to social media to announce the same and revealed that the film's shooting has begun. He said that a lot of preparations have gone into its pre-production and that he is excited after joining the shoot.
Posting a short video from the location, he tweeted, "Back to shoot after nearly 6 months of preparation. This one is going to be bigger. Thank you all for patiently waiting and supporting #Veeran (sic)." The shooting commenced in Pollachi with a simple ceremony.
Going by the video he shared, it looks like the team has started off with a colourful song sequence. Billed as a fantasy movie, Athira Raj essays the female lead in Veeran which features Munishkanth, Kaali Venkat and Sassi Selvaraj among others in prominent roles.
Unsurprisingly, Hip Hop himself will be composing music for the film. Deepak D Menon handles cinematography for the movie which has GK Prasanna in charge of editing. NK Rahul is at the helm of art direction while Mahesh Mathew and Keerthi Vasan are handling action choreography and costume designing respectively.
In an earlier chat with OTTplay, Hip Hop had told us that the movie will be the biggest project of his career in terms of scale. He said, "It has ample fantasy elements and I'm getting trained for several days for something which I can't reveal now."
