Blockbuster production-distribution banner Lyca Productions has announced its next big venture titled Pattathu Arasan on Thursday, November 10. Directed by Sarkunam, the upcoming film stars Atharvaa Murali and popular Kannada heroine Ashika Ranganath as the lead pair, while acclaimed veteran actors Rajkiran and Radikaa Sarathkumar will be seen in pivotal roles. The first look for Pattathu Arasan has been released by Lyca Productions and shows Atharvaa and Rajkiran with their heads held high on what appears to be a playground, with the film speculated to be revolving around the sport of Kabbadi.
Lyca Productions have had a mighty successful 2022 after tasting massive box office successes in the form of Mani Ratnam's Ponniyin Selvan: I and Sivakarthikeyan's Don, while also distributing films like S. S. Rajamouli's RRR and Dulquer Salmaan, Mrunal Thakur and Rashmika Mandanna-starrer Sita Ramam. Pattathu Arasan began filming last year and photos from the shooting spot showed Atharvaa, Ashika Ranganath, and Radikaa Sarathkumar, with the film also featuring a talented technical team among whom are music director Ghibran, cinematographer Loganathan, and editor Raja Mohammed. Check out below the Pattathu Arasan first look poster:
