Eminent filmmaker Venkat Prabhu recently announced his upcoming film and surprisingly it will not be a feature film. Venkat announced that he will now make a short film which will be the first time for this director.
Talking to a leading daily, the Chennai 600028 director said, “This was something I wanted to do for a long time. Everyone does a short film and then comes to the big screen, but I haven’t done a short film before, so I wanted to give it a shot. It was actually Sampath’s idea, and he’ll be a part of the film.”
The director posted a message on his social networking page with a picture of the cast and crew of the film and made this announcement. The message read, “Always wanted to try my hands on this one. Now it’s happening finally“.

Venkat Prabhu also said that the film will be based on a book by writer RT Kumar. “The film will be based on a short story by RT Kumar. One of the stories from his collection intrigued me and I wanted to make it as a short film. It will not be in my usual casual style. It’ll have a social message befitting the times. I don’t want to spoil the surprise by revealing more,” said Venkat Prabhu.
The director says that the story will be a serious one when asked if his brother Premgi will feature in his first short film. Venkat also added that Yuvan Shankar Raja will compose the music for this film and the cinematography will be handled by Shreyan who is a newcomer.
