The performances of Ivana, Radhika, Sathyaraj, Yogi Babu and Raveena among others were highlights of the rom-com which was elevated by the music of Yuvan Shankar Raja. The project, which was made with a low budget, ended up grossing huge numbers, leaving the trade surprised.
There have been several speculation doing the rounds on Pradeep's next project as an actor and a director. There was news that he is likely to team up with Vignesh Shivan for a project and that Kamal Haasan's Raaj Kamal Films would bankroll it.
The Poda Podi filmmaker was out from Lyca Productions' Ajith-starrer AK 62 (tentative title) earlier this year and hence, the speculation was rife about the intriguing collaboration. However, it looks like Pradeep has some other plans. The young actor-filmmaker revealed to us that his next would have him acting in the lead apart from being at the project's helm, too.
He also added that an announcement on the same would surface at the right time. The release of Love Today posters and its title evoked quite a lot of attention on social media, leaving everyone curious. Movie buffs hope that Pradeep would come up with a surprise soon and deliver something which is more entertaining than his two directorial projects.
