Raghava Lawrence has his hands full with two big projects - Rudhran and the recently-announced Adhigaram. Among the two, Rudhran was launched earlier this year in Chennai, with leading actress Priya Bhavani Shankar announced to be playing the female lead and popular action hero and politician Sarath Kumar as well joining the cast. Reputed Tamil film producer S Kathiresan of 5 Star Creations LLP is making his directorial debut with Rudhran and the upcoming project is now in its third schedule as per our sources. It has been further revealed that the talkie portions will be completed with the ongoing leg of filming after which only stunt sequences will be shot by the team. 

There is a tremendous amount of buzz surrounding Rudhran as it marks Raghava Lawrence's next after the 2019 box office blockbuster Kanchana 3. Last year, Lawrence had also directed Laxmii in Hindi with Akshay Kumar and Kiara Advani, a remake of Kanchana, and will be looking to hit it big with Rudhran. Expectations for the film are also high considering producer S Kathiresan, who is known for bankrolling films like Polladhavan, Aadukalam and Jigarthanda, has taken to the director's chair and will include a story and screenplay written by KP Thiru Maaran. 

Rudhran will also be ably supported by chart-buster composer G. V. Prakash Kumar, who will be looking to top it off yet again after his thunderous songs and score in Asuran and Soorarai Pottru, and will be in the line of his other big project as director Vetri Maaran's Vaadivaasal with Suriya. Apart from Raghava Lawrence, Priya Bhavani Shankar and Sarath Kumar, Rudhran will also has veteran actors Nassar and Poornima Bhagyaraj cast in pivotal roles, with ace cinematographer RD Rajasekhar handling the camera.
