A.R.Murugadoss is one of the leading filmmakers in Tamil cinema who has a good fan following. The ace filmmaker's last directorial venture was Darbar that had Superstar Rajinikanth in the lead role. Nayanthara, Nivetha Thomas, and Yogi Babu played supporting roles in the film. The film received a fairly positive reception from Rajinikanth fans and the family audience. Following Darbar's release, Murugadoss was speculated to team up with Thalapathy Vijay for a film (Thalapathy 65), but it did not happen. The blockbuster director is currently busy with the pre production works of his next directorial venture and the fans are eagerly waiting for an official announcement regarding that project.

Meanwhile, an exciting announcement regarding Murugadoss's new film as a producer has been made. For the first ever time, AR Murugadoss will be producing a pan Indian mega biggie and he will be joining hands with Hindi producer Om Prakash Bhatt for the film. Murugadoss and Om Prakash Bhatt will bankroll a new film which is titled 1947. From the title, it looks like the film will be a historical period drama, but we will get better clarity only through further announcements. The film will be directed by Pon Kumaran. Producer Om Prakash Bhatt took to his Twitter page to share this big announcement with the fans.

Sharing a picture with AR Murugadoss, Om Prakash Bhatt tweeted, "Great to announce collaboration with @ARMurugadoss Announcing our film titled #1947 Directed by #PonKumaran.!". This announcement has created a solid buzz on social media and it looks like 1947 will be an interesting film to look forward to.
