Pushkar-Gayatri directorial Vikram Vedha was one of the most acclaimed films in Tamil cinema last year which went on to garner a lot of appreciation. A crime thriller, Vikram Vedha starred R.Madhavan, Vijay Sethupathi, Shraddha Srinath and Varalaxmi Sathkumar in lead roles. All the actors received a lot of appreciation from audiences and critics while the male lead actors, Madhavan and Sethupathi, received a bit more for their intense chemistry. Madhavan and Shraddha Srinath played a couple in the film and many viewers felt that they made a good pair onscreen. And the they are all set to weave the magic again onscreen and this time in a romantic tale.
Madhavan and Shraddha Srinath will pair up again for a romantic story which will be directed by debutante Dhilip Kumar. Dhilip shot to fame with the short film Kalki which garnered a lot of attention from Tamil audiences. The young filmmaker ropes in the senior actor Madhavan and the young actress Shraddha Srinath right for his first feature film. “After a very long time, Madhavan is acting in a pure romance drama. He has done the Tanu Weds Manu films in Hindi, but in those, he had to act passive. This one will be a very charming character,” Dhilip was quoted as saying by TOI.
Speaking about having Maddy and Shraddha as the lead, Dhilip added, “Actually, we were considering if we have to cast the same pair. But their romantic track was only a part of that film, and we are not banking on that anyway. Mainly, the female protagonist’s character has got a lot to do with how Shraddha is in real life. It’s a character that is mature, and Madhavan’s is also in the same vein.”
“The story is essentially between these two people who have a mature outlook and how their love story is strung together by the simple things in life,” the young filmmaker adds further. The music of this yet untitled will be rendered by Ghibran.
