Venkat Prabhu and Naga Chaitanya met up a while back for an action drama that would be made in Tamil and Telugu, as it was announced.Krithi Shetty, who will be seen in the Bala-Suriya project in the coming months, is expected to play the female lead in this film.Venkat says, I wanted a young actress for the role I had written and thought Krithi would be appropriate for the role.Her character will be both challenging and amusing.Ilaiyaraaja and Yuvan Shankar Raja will perform the music.Venkat admits that being a part of the legendary music composer for the first time is unsettling.When this film came to fruition, I wanted periyappa (Ilaiyaraaja) to take over.I didnt want to leave Yuvan, with whom I have always communicated, but in the same spirit. Yuvan, too, will help me out because I am nervous, he says with a smile and adds, The songs will be composed by Raja sir and Yuvan will work on the background score.The film is set in the 1990s, and I utilised both worlds to compose music for it.Venkat was even shocked by Ilaiyaraaja's tweets about him and the film.He beams, it was like an Oscar. And suddenly, I see this tweet on my timeline!He's never addressed my work before, and this surprise was absolutely heartwarming.Venkat says the shooting will begin in Hyderabad next month.We will be shooting in Hyderabad, Rajamundry, Chennai, and parts of Kerala. SR Kathir will be cranking the camera, and Venkat Raajen, who worked with me in Manmadha Leelai, is the film's editor, he informs.
