Kamal Haasan's close associate and director Rajesh M Selva who is known for making movies like Thoongavanam and Kadaram Kondan, is all set for his next venture. Rajesh M Selva's next directorial venture will be a web series and the OTT project will star Sarath Kumar in the lead role. Interestingly, this series will mark Sarath Kumar's debut in the digital space. The web series is titled Irai (Prey) and it will be a crime thriller. The web series is said to be based on the book, 'Birds of Prey', written by Archana Sarat, but an official confirmation is awaited. Irai will be produced by Radikaa Sarathkumar under her banner of Radaan Mediaworks.

The web series was officially launched with a formal pooja, yesterday (July 5) morning in Chennai. The shooting has also begun and the team has started to shoot sequences featuring Sarath Kumar and other junior artists. The makers have reportedly made sure everyone in the set has gone through proper Covid-19 tests, before taking part in the shoot. The team will follow the bio-bubble concept as a precautionary measure. Irai will have music composed by Ghibran, while the cinematography and editing are handled by Yuvaraj and San Lokesh respectively. Stunt Silva will be choreographing the stunts. Details regarding the OTT release platform are yet to be known and we will have to wait for a few more months to know about it.

Talking about the project, producer Radikaa Sarathkumar was quoted as saying, “We at Radaan, have always believed that family audiences are the superpowers that support and contribute towards the success of content made by our production house across various platforms. This has continuously urged us in catering to the tastes of different generations. Happily, we have always experienced their unconditional support and love. Significantly, our maiden production in the OTT platform “IRAI” (PREY) will have all elements that engross the family audiences. Despite ‘CRIME-THRILLER’ as its core genre, the show will encapsulate the essence of family, sentiments, and relationships.

I am extremely happy that Shri. Sarathkumar is venturing into the world of OTT through our production house. Rajesh M Selva has proved his proficiency in making top-notch thrillers that garnered groovy responses among the universal crowds. We are confident that his Midas-touch will add more intensity to IRAI.”
