Actor-Director Prabhu Dheva was directing a multi-starrer Tamil film titled Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja which featured Karthi and Vishal in the lead roles. The film also featured the gorgeous Sayyeshaa in the female lead role. The film was being shot in and around Chennai but latest developments about the shooting of the film might not be great news for Tamil movie-goers.
According to latest reports, Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja has been shelved for the time being after director Prabhu Dheva decided to halt the shooting of the film. Reports are also doing rounds that Prabhu Dheva might not resume shooting the film anytime soon and the film may not be revived.
Reports prior to this suggested that music composer of the film Harris Jayaraj and Prabhu Dheva had traveled to London to complete the composing sessions of the film. But these latest developments indicate that the film might not see the light of the day anytime sooner.
The shooting of the film was launched amidst much hype in April this year with the lead cast Vishal, Karthi and Sayyeshaa starting to shoot for the film. The songs for the film were also being composed by Harris Jayaraj in the meanwhile. The story of Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja is written by Subhash and was being directed by Prabhu Dheva which marked his comeback to Tamil cinema after a long hiatus.
The makers haven’t released any official statement yet on this but going by the buzz in the industry, shooting of Karuppu Raja Vellai Raja might be put on hold.
