After the hit film Raja Kaiya Vechcha which released in 1990, actor Prabhu and actress Gautami were never paired up opposite each other. However, after 26 years, they are now slated to come together again on-screen in a new untitled film.

After her marriage, she quit films but was appearaing in small-screen soaps.
She made a grand comeback as an actress in last year’s super-hit film Papanasam which pitter her opposite her real-life live-in partner and actor Kamal haasan. Gautami’s latest Malayalam film opposite Mohanlal, dubbed into Tamil as Namadhu, released recently in theatres and has been doing very well.
Gautami’s next Tamil film would pit her opposite Prabhu after 26 long years. Though it has been confirmed that Gautami and Prabhu would be the pair in the film, the title and other cast/crew members and technicians haven’t yet been finalized. A formal announcement about the film’s launch is likely to be made this week.
