Siddharth’s new film directed by Sasi and co-starring GV Prakash Kumar will be a trilingual. The project, which will be shot in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu,was launched yesterday. The makers behind the as-yet-untitled film want to capitalise on the actor’s fan base in Hindi as well as Telugu through this move.
According to a source close to the production house – Abhishek Pictures – the film will be shot in Chennai and Puducherry. Rumours that the film has been titled Rettai Kombu are false. “A title has not been decided yet. The female leads have also not been finalised. Only when the full team is in place will we announce the cast and crew,” he said.
Sasi has directed films such as Roja Kootam, Poo and Pichaikkaran. Prasanna Kumar handles the cinematography for the film, while San Lokesh is the editor. Prasanna has collaborated with Sasi for Pichaikkaran, but this is San Lokesh’s first project with the director.
According to the source, the new film has a unique plot at its core. They also dismissed rumours that Siddharth and GV Prakash Kumar play brothers in the film.
Siddharth tweeted about the film’s launch earlier on Tuesday. He said that he had waited years to work with Sasi and was very excited about the film. The actor is expected to begin filming soon for the project.
