Grapevine has it that Kamal Haasan has been approached to play the baddie in Prashanth Neel's upcoming film, featuring Jr NTR in the lead. Hearsay is that the KGF director, reportedly, thought of roping in Ulaganayagan for the villain’s role, after seeing his rugged look in Vikram posters. However, an official confirmation is awaited.
Prashanth envisioned a powerful character that has negative shades and believes that casting Kamal Haasan in the role will make a big difference. He has conveyed the same to the actor-politician and is waiting for his nod. A source in the know tells OTTplay, "A clearer picture will come to light soon."
Tentatively called NTR 31, this yet-to-be-named venture is produced by Mythri Movie Makers, along with NTR Arts.
NTR 31, touted to be an intense action thriller, will go on floors by April 2023, and the makers are looking to release it during the Pongal holidays in 2024, in multiple languages.
Expectations are sky-high for NTR 31 post the tremendous success of KGF Chapter 2. Bankrolled by Hombale Films, the Yash-starrer minted Rs 1200-something crore at the box office, according to reports.
Meanwhile, Prashanth Neel is occupied with Salaar, featuring Prabhas and Shruti Haasan in lead roles. The film, shot in Kannada and Telugu, has cinematography by Bhuvan Gowda and music composed by Ravi Basrur. (Both were a part of KGF films, too.)
Earlier, Prabhas hinted that Salaar, which additionally features Malayalam actor Prithviraj Sukumaran and Jagapathi Babu, will be a two-part project. Unconfirmed sources say that Prabhas could be seen in a double role in the film. Notably, Hombale Films, the banner which produced the KGF film series, is bankrolling Salaar.
Kamal Haasan, on the other hand, is promoting Vikram in Delhi.
