The big news now is that the actor, whose kitty is full with projects from some of the biggest filmmakers in K’town including Bala, Rajeev Menon and Vetri Maran, has been roped in by Tollywood filmmaker, Sukumar, for the Tamil remake of his blockbuster 100 Percent Love.
Sukumar restricts himself to production — while MM Chandramouli, a film graduate, who had assisted Hollywood cinematographer Fred Murphy — makes his debut and wields the megaphone for the untitled film. He has also worked as a cinematographer in Hollywood flicks like Backwaters and Natasha.
Bollywood cinematographer, Dudley, who is known for his works in Chennai Express, Dilwale and Singham, is behind the camera. Speaking about his project, the director says, “Though it is a romantic drama, I am penning the screenplay in such a way that it will go well with all types of audiences.”
