Popular dance choreographer and actor Prabhu Deva seems to be on a signing spree. Even though he has multiple projects in his pipeline, he recently finalised his next and has started shooting for the same. Touted to be an action thriller, the upcoming yet to be titled movie is being helmed by debutant director Sam Rodriguez and will reportedly feature Prabhu Deva in the lead role of a cop.
“He has donned the role of a cop in Pon Manickavel. While that seems to be a more commercial film, this one is an intense cop story and it revolves around the life of an IPS officer. The film is based on true incidents and I felt that Prabhu Deva sir could pull off the character with ease. We have seen him in romantic dramas, comedy, action, and adventure films. This one will be completely different from the ones we’ve seen him in. The film will be a stylish yet an intense one. So, in that sense, this will be a treat for his fans,” the newbie director revealed.
Sam, who had earlier worked as an associate with filmmaker Deekay, also shared that Prabhu Deva liked the script a lot and, as a result, fixed dates for the filming immediately. “We have begun shooting in Chennai. The shooting is happening in and around Chennai. We will also be shooting on the Kodaikanal-Munnar stretch. We will be shooting some action sequences there,” the director further shared about the filming of the forthcoming action thriller.
Apart from Prabhu Deva, Bigg Boss Tamil fame Shariq, VTV Ganesh, Malayalam actors Binu Pappu and Leona Lishoy, John Vijay, and Thangadurai are also part of the upcoming thriller’s cast while Yaamirukka Bayamey and Katteri fame Prasad SN will be scoring music for the film.
