Venkat Prabhu geared up for next project
Venkat Prabhu, after basking in the success of the blockbuster Ajith starrer Mankatha, is back to the ways of direction now. While the earlier stories about him stated that he was working on a new script, the new ones say that Venkat Prabhu has finally given a shape to that particular script work. According to the sources close to him, the script, which would be the plot of his next flick, has got a tentative title, Biriyani. What’s more about Biriyani? Karthi and Richa Gangopadhyay are starring in Biriyani playing the lead roles opposite to each other.
Tamil Briyani or Hyderabad Briyani?
Earlier, the sources just confirmed that Venkat Prabhu has chosen Karthi to play the lead role in his movie. The sources also told the media that Venkat is in search of a perfect pair for the Karthi on screen. However, now, the recent news from the sources says that, Venkat Prabhu has zeroed in on Richa Gangopadhyay, the girl who starred opposite Dhanush in Mayakkam Enna and opposite Simbu in Osthe. The sources add that Venkat Prabhu worked a lot in fixing the casting of the female lead. They further add that Venkat wanted someone from the A -List of female lead actors to romance Karthi in Biriyani. After thinking much about the casting, it seems as if Richa Gangopadhyay has finally appeared to be the best bet to Venkat Prabhu.
Richa Gangopadhyay added spicy to Briyani
When the media contacted Richa Gangopadhyay, she confirmed the news by stating that she has agreed to star in Biriyani. She added that she is feeling very happy and excited about the project, as she had to wait for quite some time to get a good script to work in Tamil after Osthe.
This is Comedy Briyani
Many might feel that the movie, Biriyani, going by the title, would be a comedy entertainer just like Venkat Prabhu’s Chennai 28 and Goa. If you are one among them then you are wrong. The fact about the movie is that, it is a suspense thriller with just a little bit of room for the comedy in the script! The pre production work of Biriyani is going on rapidly, as Yuvan Shankar Raja has already started working on the tunes!
