Director Pa Ranjith, who has become a controversial personality thanks to his recent comments on Tamil emperor Raja Raja Cholan, is all set to commence his next film.
According to reports, Ranjith’s first choice was Karthi but as the actor was busy with multiple commitments, he decided to go ahead with the project with Arya playing the lead role.
Touted to be an action entertainer with boxing as the main element, the film will have Sathyaraj playing a key role. If sources are to be believed, attempts are being made to rope in Rana Daggubati too.
After completing this project, Ranjith will start working on a biopic in Hindi on freedom fighter Birsa Munda. The film will be bankrolled by Namah Pictures in association with Iranian filmmaker Majid Majidi.
As far as Arya is concerned, his immediate releases in Tamil will be ‘Magamuni’ and ‘Kaappaan’ with Suriya. He is busy with ‘Teddy’ with director Shakti Soundararajan in which he will be seen romancing his wife Sayyeshaa.
