Post his Irudhi Suttru and Vikram Vedha, Madhavan climbed back to the top of the league last year followed by a cameo in Jyothika’s Magalir Mattum and a negative role in Naga Chaitanya’s, Savyasachi. The actor, who is at present working on the trilingual, Rocketry: The Nambi Effect, has now officially been roped to star in Telugu director Kona Venkat’s next with actress Anushka Shetty as the female lead.

Kona Venkat took to his Twitter page to make the news official on the occasion of Anushka Shetty’s birthday. The upcoming project will also mark the second time Madhavan and the Baahubali actress will be sharing screen space after a gap of 13 years when they were last seen in the Tamil film, Rendu, in 2006. The film is also the Telugu superstar actress’s next after her Bhaagamathie, released earlier this year.
