Choreographer-turned-actor Raghava Lawrence and Ritika Singh will be seen together in a bilingual horror flick, Shivalinga. The film is a remake of Kannada film of the same name that ran for 100 days.

The movie will be helmed by director P Vasu. The actor-director combination has earlier done horror films together. While Lawrence is known for his horror films Kanchana and Ganga, director P Vasu shot to fame after his blockbuster hit with Rajiinikanth and Jyothika, Chandramukhi.

More from the world of Entertainment:

“Kanchana was a big hit. Ganga was an even bigger hit. When I was thinking that I should do a bigger hit than Ganga, Vasu asked me to watch Shivalinga. I liked it a lot. I agreed to act in the movie. The story is the first hero of Shivalinga. Ritika Singh is the second hero. Shakthi Vasu is the third and I am the fourth hero. Ritika will get the kind of fame that Jyothika got after ‘Chandramukhi’. I was thrilled on watching her performance in the interval block. As for Vasu, I am happy to have acted under the direction of someone who directed my favourite hero Rajinikanth,” said actor Lawrence.

Director Vasu is ready to tap on his expertise of remaking Tamil-Telugu hit Chandramukhi from Kannada hit Aaptha Mitra. “Once again, a similar thing is happening after many years. Raghava Lawrence has acted in a more gutsy way than he did in Kanchana and Kanchana-2. Vadivelu and my son Shakthi Vasu are playing important roles in this movie,” the director said.

Popular south Indian music director S S Thaman, who worked earlier in Lawrence’s film, is also confident about giving music to Shivalinga. “Kanchana and Kanchana-2 in our combination were a big hit. So will be Shivalinga. All the six songs have come out very well,” Thaman said.

The shooting part of the movie is wrapped up except for a song and the film is slated to hit the screens in January next year.
