Udhayanidhi whose last film ‘Manithan’ had a decent run at the box office, has signed his next.
He will be teaming up with director Thalapathy Prabhu, a debutante.
The film will be a rural comedy, on the likes of the director’s mentor Ponram’s flicks- ‘Rajini Murugan’ and ‘VVS’, it is learnt.
Actress Nivetha Pethuraj of ‘Oru Naal Koothu’ fame has been brought on board for the project.
A highlight of the film is actor-director Parthiban who will essay a prominent role, said sources.
“The film will go on floors next week, while Udhay is expected to juggle between the shoots of this and his film with director Ezhil”, added sources.
He will be romancing two heroines in the latter’s project, with Soori playing the hero’s sidekick.
