Mari Selvaraj and Udhayinidhi Stalin to team up for a new film; AR Rahman to score music
After the smashing success of ‘Karnan’, director Mari Selvaraj is next prepping up for a a sports-based movie starring Dhruv Vikram. As per latest reports, the acclaimed filmmaker will then team up with actor-politician Udhayinidhi Stalin. It is learnt that the film will be based on the life of a South Tamil Nadu personality. Maestro AR Rahman will be composing music for this film. More details regarding the project are awaited.
Mari Selvaraj is already among the most wanted filmmakers in Kollywood. Both his films, ‘Pariyerum Perumal’ and ‘Karnan’, are known for their political subtexts and sending out powerful statements against caste and class based discrimination. It will be interesting to see the director join hands with a political figure like Udhayanidhi Stalin, an MLA and also the son of Tamil Nadu Chief Minister.
Reports suggest that Udhayanidhi Stalin will be focussing completely on his political career after this movie.
