'Idhayam Murali' goes Bollywood?
Actor Udhayanidhi Stalin is busy with Nanbean Da. His next film is to be directed by Endrendrum Punnagai fame Ahmed.
Udhayanidhi is teaming up with Hansika for this film, which is titled as Idhayam Murali. If sources are to be believed film with Udhayanidhi is to be made in Hindi as well.
A source in the know says, “Although it is confirmed that director Ahmed will make the film in Hindi, we do not know if whether he will shoot the Hindi version simultaneously with the Tamil version, or later.”
Work on the Tamil film, which will feature Hansika in the lead opposite Udhay in the Tamil version, is to begin in November this year. “The film is likely to be released by the middle of next year. Like Ahmed’s earlier film, Endrendrum Punnagai, this film too will be vibrant and visually appealing,” says the source, who also discloses that over 70 per cent of the film will be shot in the US.
“The team also intends to shoot one song in Scotland. I believe the director’s story is about finding true love in these uncertain times. In short, it will be a film on friendship and love but will be different from other romantic films made so far,” says the source.
