Nayanthara has reportedly started shooting with director Milind Rau for an upcoming, as-yet-untitled film, which is likely to be produced by her partner and director Vignesh Shivan.
The film is yet to be officially announced. As reported earlier, talks have been on since February 2019 and reports now say that the shooting has begun. The film also stars the dog that played an important role in Yogi Babu’s Gurkha. “The makers were quite particular in casting the dog that has become the talk of the town,” a source told Indian Express.
Milind Rau made his debut with the 2013 film Kadhal 2 Kalyanam, starring Arya’s brother Sathya and Divya in the lead, and he returned with the well-received 2017 horror film Aval, starring Siddharth and Andreah Jeremiah. There are also reports now that he is likely to direct a movie with Rana Daggubati soon.
Nayanathara, meanwhile, is back on the sets of AR Murugadoss’ Darbar for the final schedule of the film. Pictures of Nayanthara and Rajinikanth flying together to Jaipur for shoot have been doing the rounds online.
