Tamil actor Harish Kalyan became a youth sensation after the success of his Pyaar Prema Kaadhal opposite Raiza Wilson in 2018, which was directed by Elan and produced under composer Yuvan Shankar Raja's YSR Films banner. He has since gone on to deliver notable performances in films like Ispade Rajavum Idhaya Raniyum, Dhanusu Raasi Neyargale, Dharala Prabhu, Kasada Thapara and most recently the rom-com Oh Manapenne! alongside Priya Bhavani Shankar. On Monday, Harish Kalyan announced his next film, which will be directed by Shanmugam Muthusamy and will feature actress Athulya Ravi as the female lead. 

Jointly being produced by SP Cinemas and Third Eye Entertainment banners, the film has been launched under the tentative title Production No. 5 and will include music by chart-buster music director D. Imman and cinematography by Sridhar. The upcoming film was launched by National Award-winning directors Vetri Maaran and Cheran, actor Vijay Sethupathi, actress Aishwarya Rajesh and composer G. V. Prakash Kumar. 

The upcoming film is incidentally Shanmugam Muthusamy's next after his Adangathey starring G. V. Prakash is still awaiting its release. Both Harish Kalyan and Athulya will also be looking to make a strong impression as the two have garnered a fan following in recent times. Athulya, who is fresh off her latest release Murungakkai Chips, will be looking to make heads turn with her performance in the new film.
