Raiza Wilson, who rose to fame with the first season of Bigg Boss Tamil, made her debut as a lead actress with the romantic drama, Pyaar Prema Kaadhal which turned out to be a big hit at the box office. The success of the film paved Raiza to sign various exciting biggies including Kadhalikka Yarumillai with G.V.Prakash, FIR with Vishnu Vishal, #Love with Walter Philips and Alice as a solo lead. Recently, it was revealed that Raiza shot for a Tamil/Telugu bilingual under the direction of Caarthick Raju of Thirudan Police fame and it was also added that the film’s shooting was completed in just 18 days of time.

The makers assured that the first look poster will be released soon and as said, the poster has now been unveiled. This new project starring Raiza Wilson is titled The Chase and the first look poster looks quite intriguing. We see Raiza tied to a tree in an upside down position and her face has stains of blood. This first look poster creates a good curiosity and it looks like the makers have shot something very interesting and gripping. The first look poster was released by Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi on his Twitter page and he wished success for the entire team of The Chase.

This film has got a strong technical backing in the form of R Velraj for cinematography, Sam CS for music, Sabu Joseph for editing and Dhilip Subbarayan for stunt direction. Produced by Raj Shekar Varma under the banner of Apple Tree Studios, The Chase will be released in Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Hindi and Kannada languages. The entire shooting of the film was completed amidst the lockdown by acquiring required permissions from the Government and was shot with a limited crew. It is said that the film will have a direct OTT release very soon on a leading streaming platform and we will have to wait for an announcement regarding that.

Talking about the project, director Caarthick Raju says, “We completed shooting in 18 days, we didn’t use track or trolley, and filmed with just a helicam. We shot at Sirumalai in Dindigul district, a small village on the foothills of a forest. It’s a corona-free village and there are hardly 500 residents there. All the 28 people who were part of the shoot, including the cast and the crew, did a COVID-19 test before and after the shoot. We had taken all the precautions and shot with complete care. The film is about a mother, her daughter and a teenager, and will tug at your heartstrings. Raiza Wilson and Harish Uthaman are leading the cast. While Bala Saravanan and Kaali Venkat will be part of the Tamil version, Sathyam Rajesh and Madhu Nandan are in the Telugu version. Anasuya, who was part of Ram Charan’s Rangasthalam, will be debuting in Kollywood with the film. Monica, who played Karthi’s daughter in Kaithi, is also part of the film.”
