The hit pair of last year’s Kalavaani is back once again. Vimal and Oviya, who rocked in the Sargunam-directed Kalavaani along with Saranya Ponvannan and Ilavarasu, have been cast in the lead roles in an upcoming film titled (SOS). The film will be produced by S. Nandagopal on behalf of his Madras Entertainment Pvt. Ltd. A popular name in the distribution circles, Nandagopal had previously produced films like Kalabakadhalan, Machchakkaran and Newtonin Moondraam Vidhi.
Besides Oviya, the other heroine in the film would be Dipa Shah, who was last spotted in director Mysskin’s Yudhdham Sei. Casting is underway to select other major actors and actresses. Rajesh Yadav would be the cinematographer of the film which introduces a young debutant music director in Faizal. Lyricist Vivegaa would be penning all the lyrics in the film.
‘Super’ Subbarayan would be the stunt choreographer. Ravi, who had earlier worked under many renowned directors as an assistant director, debuts as director with SOS. Ravi would also be writing the story, screenplay and dialogues. The film is produced at a huge budget by Nandagopal, who has always patronized good stories and newcomers as directors.
The first schedule of the film’s shooting was just wrapped up in Chennai. The next schedule of shoot would take the film’s crew to countries like New Zealand, Malaysia and Thailand. The producer is planning a 40-day non-stop stint to wrap up the film after shooting in all these countries.
Deviating from his usual care-free kind of roles, Vimal reportedly takes on a serious role in the film.
