We had already reported that director Lakshman of Romeo Juliet fame is working on his next film with Jayam Ravi, which will be produced by actor-choreographer Prabhu Deva. While it was initially rumoured that Vijay Sethupathi or Bobby Simha would be a part of it, the recent buzz is that Arvind Swami, who played a powerful antagonist in Thani Oruvan, has been approached for this yet-to-be titled flick. Jayam Ravi and Arvind Swami were a hit combo in that film, and only time will tell if the team will bring Arvind on board. When DC contacted Lakshman, he said, Jayam Ravi has accepted the offer and talks are on with Arvind.
“I narrated the script to Arvind, while I am awaiting his nod of approval. But I am hoping that I would be able to convince Arvind. We haven’t finalised anything, yet this film would be of a different genre with two heroines,” he added. Lakshman also informed that after completing this untitled flick, he would direct Romeo Juliet in Telugu, produced by Tollywood producer KS Ramarao.
