Prasanna's next big project after Mafia - teams up with this talented director!
Prasanna was last seen in Mafia: Chapter 1 in which he played the role of DK (Diwakar), a super stylish antagonist and he aced the character with class and conviction. His performance received good reviews and a certain section of people even felt that he could have been utilized even more. The film, which featured Arun Vijay as the protagonist, was directed by Karthick Naren and produced by Lyca Productions. Up next, he would be seen playing one of the leads in Vishal's Thupparivaalan 2, which will mark the directorial debut of Vishal. The shooting of the film is expected to resume in London after the pandemic when everyone is declared safe.
Meanwhile, it looks like Prasanna has already completed shooting for a project amidst the lockdown. Yes! Prasanna has teamed up with director Barath Neelakantan, who made an impressive debut with the Arulnithi starrer K-13, for a new project. This is said to be a short film for AHA OTT platform which is slowly gaining popularity among the South Indian audience. The shooting of this short film has been wrapped up and director Barath Neelakantan took to his social media page to share his excitement about the collaboration.
Posting a selfie picture with Prasanna, Barath Neelakantan wrote, "Glad to have worked twice with @Prasanna_actor, one of the best actors in Tamil cinema! This time I get to Direct him! More details coming soon #ArhaMedia #SNDSDreamcatchers @ahavideoIN @DC_SNDS @N_sujatha08". Prasanna replied to Barath's tweet by saying, "Thanks for the kind words Bharath. loved working with you again and the whole team". As Barath says, we will have to wait for a few more weeks to know more about this OTT project for AHA platform.
For the uninformed, AHA is an OTT platform exclusively for Telugu movies and this streaming platform is owned by veteran producer Allu Aravind and his son Allu Arjun, who is a Superstar in Tollywood. AHA is streaming some of the recently acclaimed Telugu films including Krishna And His Leela and Bhanumathi & Ramakrishna. The Telugu dubbed versions of notable Tamil and Malayalam films like NGK, Kaithi, 36 Vayadhinile, Hero, Trance, Forensic are also streaming on the said platform.
Digital space is not something new for Prasanna who has already played the lead in the Zee 5 Tamil web series, Thiravam, directed by ace cinematographer Arvind Krishna. For now, check out Barath Neelakantan's social media post below:
