Actor Atharvaa‘s upcoming film Imaikka Nodigal is back in the news again.
Directed by De’Monte Colony fame Ajay Gnanamuthu, the film has been in the news time and again with big names continuing to join the team. First, it was Atharvaa, then, we broke the news of Nayanthara joining the team and then, it was announced that Raashi Kanna too would join the team and play the role of Atharvaa’s pair.
Now, the unit of the film seems to have roped in one of Bollywood’s most acclaimed directors, Anurag Kashyap too. Sources say that the ace director will play the villain in the film, which already has an impressive cast list. Interestingly, this will be Anurag Kashyap’s first Tamil film.
“No one can forget filmmaker Anurag Kashyap’s ruthless police officer’s role in AR Murugadoss sir’s Akira. We are very happy to have such a magnificent actor on board our project. His character name is Rudra in our film. Although he is a villain, the role will be something that the audience would have never seen in a Tamil thriller film.” reveals Ajay Gnanamuthu.
Work on the film is slated to commence during the middle of this month.
