Nayanthara is keen to work on the film to be directed by Arivazhagan.

Director Arivazhagan, best known for films such as Eeram and Kuttram 23, has joined hands with actor Nayanthara for a yet-untitled Tamil-Telugu action-based psychological thriller. On signing the project, he had told Hindustan Times. “I’m pleased to have Nayanthara on board for this heroine centric psychological thriller. Her stardom and acting prowess will add value to the project and elevate it.”

Talking about the film, he added, “Other than being a psychological thriller, the exact genre of the movie will be disclosed either in the first look or the teaser to entice audiences. It’s been my long-time desire to make a female centric project and I’m excited things fell in place with Nayanthara.”

The preproduction is already underway. He had earlier also said, “We hope to start the principal shooting from December (2017) end or the beginning of January. The story will be set in Chennai, and we plan to wrap up the project in 45 days,” he said. The project was to be bankrolled by Shankar of SP Cinemas. However, in a sudden change of events Shankar decided to opt out of the project for reasons yet unknown, delaying the commencement of the project. Following Shankar’s sudden exit, Nayanthara has taken it upon herself to find a new producer as she’s very keen to do the film. It must be noted that it was Nayanthara, who helped Aramm director find a producer after he was turned down by many.

There are also rumours that Nayanthara might ghost produce the project. SS Thaman has been roped in to compose the tunes. On the career front, Nayanthara currently has over half a dozen projects in her kitty. These include Tamil films Imaikka Nodigal, Kolayuthir Kaalam, Co Co, Telugu project Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Malayalam film Love Action Drama.
