Oviya and Vedhika in Raghava Lawrence’s Kanchana 3
Actor-director-choreographer Raghava Lawrence is the one who should be credited for starting the horror comedy wave in Kollywood. The success of his Muni/Kanchana franchise triggered the trend of horror comedy flicks in Tamil cinema. Kanchana 2, the third part in the series, was a whopping success doing a business of over Rs 100 crores.
However, his last two outings Motta Siva Ketta and Sivalinga tanked miserably at the box-office, leaving him with no option other than returning to the his highly successful Muni franchise. Raghava Lawrence has already started works on the fourth part in the series.
According to latest reports, Lawrence has roped in Bigg Boss sensation Oviya and Vedhika for the movie. Newcomer Nikita will be playing the third female lead in this horror flick. It must be noted that Vedhika was the heroine in Muni, the first part in the series which was released back in 2007.
This upcoming movie will be a sequel to Kanchana 2 and Raghava Lawrence himself will be directing it. Rest of the cast and crew details have not yet been revealed. Leading production house Sun Pictures will be producing the movie. The project is slated to goes on floors from the last week of October.
