Blockbuster Tamil film director Venkat Prabhu hit the bullseye towards the end of last year with his Maanaadu starring Silambarasan TR in the lead role under Suresh Kamatchi's V House Productions banner and featuring music by Yuvan Shankar Raja. Soon after completing Maanaadu, the hit filmmaker had announced a quickie, tentatively titled VP10, produced jointly by Rockfort Entertainment and Black Ticket Company banners. With no names officially announced so far from VP10, the makers on Saturday finally announced the of the upcoming film to be Manmatha Leelai in Tamil and Manmadaleela in Telugu. The team has announced that Manmatha Leelai stars Oh My Kadavule hero Ashok Selvan in the lead role, who will be sharing screen space with Puppy heroine Samyukta Hegde, Mookuthi Amman actress Smruthi Venkat, and Seeru fame Riya Suman, and will feature music by Premgi Amaren. Check out the announcement below:

Venkat Prabhu, who has carved a niche for himself as one of the most successful commercial directors in Tamil cinema, will be looking to carry forward the same momentum with Manmatha Leelai after the stellar success of his Maanaadu with STR. The time-loop action thriller, which also starred S. J. Suryah, Y. G. Mahendran, S. A; Chandrasekhar, Kalyani Priyadarshan, Premgi, Karunakaran among others in pivotal roles, not only turned out to be a massive commercial success but also went on to be showered with critical praise. Venkat Prabhu, who is usually known for his multi-starrers like Chennai 600028 films, Saroja and Goa, while also delivering one of the biggest box office hits in actor Ajith Kumar's career in the form of Mankatha, will want to ace it once again with his Manmatha Leelai, which has been described to be a "fun quirky ride".
