Filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, who was last seen as a villain in AR Murugadoss-directed Akira, will be making his Tamil debut with upcoming action-thriller, Imaikaa Nodigal.

“I am Rudra. Here’s the news guys. I’ve signed a Tamil film titled Imaikaa Nodigal, a nail-biting thriller with Nayanthara and Atharvaa,” Kashyap shared on his Twitter page on Saturday.

He will play the antagonist in the film.

To be directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu, the film stars Atharvaa and Raashi Khanna in the lead. Nayanthara will be seen in a pivotal role.

The project will be bankrolled by Cameo Films and will have music by Hip Hop Tamizha.

Interestingly, Ajay is the erstwhile assistant of Murugadoss. According to a source, AR Murugadoss was influential in making the filmmaker-actor sign on the dotted line for the offer.

“When Ajay wanted to approach Anurag with the offer, it was Murugadoss who helped set up the meeting. Having worked with Murugadoss in ‘Akira’, Anurag took his word and gladly accepted the offer. He will join the sets later this month,” said a source from the film’s unit.

“Anurag will slug it out with Nayanthara, who will be seen as a police commissioner. It’s going to be a very interesting role,” he said.
