Yuvan Shankar Raja has ventured into production with his new production banner YSR Films. Yesterday, he announced a joint venture with Bollywood producer Vashu Bhagnani who owns the banner Pooja Films.
Titled Kolaiyuthir Kaalam, the film has Nayanthara playing the lead role. The movie will be directed by Chakri Toleti of Billa 2 and Unnai Pol Oruvan fame. Yuvan Shankar Raja is scoring the music for the project.
“I have a special connect with Tamil cinema. My first film Coolie No.1 (1995) was a remake of a Tamil film Chinna Mapillai, and it became a cult film. Today after 21 years I am again venturing into producing a Tamil film myself and I am very really excited about this one,” says Vashu Bhagnani in an official statement.
“We love telling stories and we at Pooja entertainment & films believe that language shouldn’t be a barrier when it comes to making films and entertaining the audiences. Post Ventilator in Marathi, and Sarvann in Punjabi we are now happy to announce that we are now producing a Tamil film as well.
The script is brilliant and hopefully soon we will be spreading our wings to many other languages as well,” says Deepshikha Deshmukh, daughter of Vashu.
