Director Ashwanth Mariuthu is all set to begin work on his next film, which will be headlined by Pradeep Ranganathan .

Refuting these rumours, the Oh My Kadavule director has said that although he had narrated a story to Silamabarasan, it was a completely different story and has nothing to do with the new project. “The script I had narrated for Silambarasan TR is different and the script we are working on for Pradeep Ranganathan is entirely different,” the director clarified. 

Ashwanth added that he and Pradeep had been planning to work on a project for a long time, but it was only now that things had fallen into place. He also added that the title announcement of the film will be made on May 1, while the shoot for the film will commence in mid-May. 


Announcement video: A dream collaboration

The makers of the film had released an announcement video that featured the blockbuster combo, which is backed by AGS Productions. The video shows Pradeep Ranaganthan in a college, revealing how he and the director have been dreaming of collaborating on a project since their college days. It turns out that their friendship goes way back, since the duo studied at the same college. In the announcement video, Pradeep reveals that their dream is finally coming true after 10 years, since they are now teaming up for the film.

The announcement video garnered a massive positive response from fans who cannot wait to witness the hit combo make their dream come true.
