Popular musician Mugen Rao became a household name in Tamil Nadu after participating in the third season of Bigg Boss. He was declared as the title winner of the show and he earned a huge fan base through the widely popular show, hosted by Kamal Haasan. Bigg Boss has proved to be a good breakthrough for a lot of contestants and Mugen Rao is definitely one among them. He will now be venturing into Tamil cinema to make his debut as a lead actor with a new movie. This untitled film is going to be directed by Anjana Ali Khan who earlier made Veppam with Nani, Nithya Menen, Karthik Kumar and others.

This new Mugen Rao starrer has got a strong technical team who are going to be the backbones of the project. Ace cinematographer R Rathnavelu (of Enthiran and Indian 2 fame) will be cranking the camera while Anthony has been signed as the editor. The young and talented Nivas K Prasanna will be scoring the music for this film. Former Miss India, Anukreethy Vas will be seen as the female lead and it is going to be refreshing to see the young girl share screen space with the sensational Mugen Rao. Aadukalam Kishore is also a part of the cast and he will be seen in an important role.

We all know Mugen as a talented singer and musician, but now it is time for us to witness the actor inside him. This announcement has made his fans and well wishers excited and look forward to the film. It has also been officially announced that the first look poster of the film will be unveiled tomorrow (September 25). Shirdi Productions will bankroll this film and it will be the company’s first production in Tamil cinema.
