Blockbuster Tamil film producer Dr. Ishari K. Ganesh is fresh off the success of his Vendhu Thanindhathu Kaadu starring Silambarasan TR under Gautham Menon's direction, and is now bankrolling his next big film, the tentatively titled HHT 7, which has the multi-talented Hiphop Tamizha in the lead role. The Rio Raj-starrer Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu Odu Raja fame Karthik Venugopalan is directing the upcoming film produced under the Vels Film International banner, which will see Hiphop Tamizha playing the role of a physical education teacher and is the actor’s second venture in the sports genre after the 2019 smash hit, Natpe Thunai. With production on HHT 7 progressing at a brisk pace, the makers have now dropped a big announcement informing fans that veteran actor Prabhu has boarded the film in a crucial role.
Prabhu is joining the cast of Hiphop Tamizha's HHT 7 after he recently wrapped up filming for 'Thalapathy' Vijay's Varisu, which is gearing up for a massive Pongal release in January 2023. The iconic actor is said to be playing a major supporting role in the Vijay-starrer, which is billed to be a full-fledged family entertainer and is now one of the most-anticipated films in recent times among Tamil cinema fans. Prabhu will be seen sharing screen space with an already packed star cast in HHT 7, which includes the likes of Viswasam fame Anikha Surendran, veteran actor Thiagarajan, Pandiarajan, Munishkanth, Ilavarasu, among others, and is touted to be a fun-filled wholesome film, which will be appealing to the kids. Below is the announcement of Prabhu coming on board Hiphop Tamizha's HHT 7:

Hiphop Tamizha will be looking to hit the bullseye with HHT 7 as his last two ventures, Sivakumarin Sabadham and Anbarivu, didn't perform as he would have expected. He is also composing the songs and the background score for the film and we can expect him to come up with foot-tapping numbers once again. HHT 7 also has a talented technical team that includes Madhesh Manickam for the cinematography and GK Prasanna for the editing, followed by A. Amaran for the production design, Swapnaa Reddy in charge of the costume design, and Mahesh Mathew overseeing the stunt choreography.
