Chennai: Actor Vidharth and Udhaya are coming together for a film, which will be directed by debutant Sharan, who earlier assisted Mohan Raja and Vishnuvardhan. The movie has been titled after Mani Ratnam’s hit film, Agni Natchathiram, which featured Karthik and Prabhu in the lead roles.
Actor Udhaya says, “When the director narrated the script, I strongly felt that Agni Natchathiram would be an apt title for the project. A few days later, I approached Ishari K Ganesh to acquire the rights for the title. Though many filmmakers had earlier requested him for the title, he agreed to give me the rights without second thought.” Sources say that though it has been titled Agni Natchathiram, the film has nothing to do with Mani Ratnam’s classic. It’s a crime thriller, they say.
