Popular lyricist Pa Vijay will be turning a director once again for a new film starring Prabhu Deva in the lead role. This yet to be titled flick was officially launched with a special pooja, last week and it looks like an interesting project is on cards. The story of this film is inspired from a real-life incident and it will be a crime thriller with a mix of horror elements as well. The young and talented Mahima Nambiar will be playing the female lead in this film and she plays a forest officer. Prabhu Deva is expected to have a rough makeover for this film and the makers are confident that this film will showcase the legendary dancer turned actor in a new dimension.

Kalaiyarasan and Thambi Ramaiah play supporting roles in this film which is expected to go on floors in September. Produced by K Murugan, the film has cinematography by Deepak Kumar Padhy, while the music is composed by Ganesan Sekar. San Lokesh will edit the film. Around 50 per cent of the film's shoot is said to take place inside a forest and the final leg of pre-production works are happening in full swing. A few months before, Pa Vijay had announced a film titled Medhavi with Jiiva and Action King Arjun, but it looks like that project is put on hold due to reasons unknown.

As far as Prabhu Deva is concerned, the talented actor has several exciting projects in his pipeline. His next release will most likely be Pon Manickavel which will have a direct OTT release on the Disney Hotstar platform. Pon Manickavel will feature Prabhu Deva as a police officer. Bagheera, Yung Mung Sung, Poikkal Kuthirai, are the other films in Prabhu Deva's upcoming lineup.
