Choreographer-actor-filmmaker Prabhudheva has started shooting for his next untitled film. The production began with a ‘pooja’ at Chennai today.
The film is directed by AC Mugil, a former associate of the Mercury actor in his directorial ventures Pokkiri and Villu. Speaking about the project, AC Mugil had said, “It’s an out-and-out action entertainer and will be set in Chennai. The story is based on a real-life incident and had a huge impact on society. I narrated the script to Prabhu eight months ago, and he started preparing for his role as a cop from then on. He began working on his physique from that moment.”
Prabhudeva who will sport a police uniform for the first time tweeted, “Prabhudheva in khaki. Shooting starts today. Really looking forward to this,”
