He will be sharing screen space with actor Gautham Karthik in the action-thriller.
It will be Simbu’s 45th film.
Director Narthan has been brought on board to helm the movie. The makers are busy with the film’s pre-production work and the film is expected to go on the floors soon.
A few weeks ago, there were reports that Simbu’s Maanadu with director Venkat Prabhu was shelved. However, producer Suresh Kamatchi assured that the film is still on and that shooting will begin soon.
