Ashok Selvan has joined hands with debut director R Karthik for a new film which is touted to be a travel-based breezy romantic drama. This new film will be produced by Viacom 18 Studios, in association with Rise East Entertainment. The highlight aspect of this film is that it will have not one, not two, but three female leads. Yes! Ritu Varma of Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal fame, Aparna Balamurali of Soorarai Pottru fame, and Shivathmika (daughter of veteran actor Rajasekhar) are the three female leads of this untitled project.

Aparna Balamurali rose to fame and earned a huge fan base after impressing the audience with her performance as Bommi in Suriya's Soorarai Pottru. This Ashok Selvan starrer will be her next in Tamil cinema and let us hope that the film strikes a chord with the audience. The shooting of the film began today (June 28) and pictures from the shooting spot are doing rounds on social media. This exciting new project will have cinematography by George C Williams, who is known for his work in movies like Raja Rani, Theri, Kaththi, and Naanum Rowdy Dhaan. Gopi Sundar and Antony will be taking care of the music and editing respectively.

A few years before, director R Karthik had announced a film titled Vaan with Dulquer Salmaan playing the lead role. Kalyani Priyadarshan, Priya Bhavani Shankar, and Kriti Kharbanda were announced as the female leads and the film was supposed to be produced by Kenanya Films. From what we hear, it looks like Vaan has been redesigned from scratch with an entirely new cast and crew. More details are awaited on this regard. Director R Karthik will now be looking forward to making a solid debut in Tamil cinema and we wish him the best.

For now, check out the official announcement of Ashok Selvan's next Tamil film, co-starring Ritu Varma, Aparna Balamurali, and Shivathmika here:
