Yet another film has joined the Pongal race. Yes, Vishal’s film with debutant director MS Anandan will hit screens for Pongal 2020, along with Darbar, which stars Rajinikanth in the lead.
A source says, “The film, which is yet to be titled, has Vishal playing a commando, while Shraddha Srinath will be seen as a cop. The film also has Regina Cassandra in the lead and her character has shades of grey. The team had recently completed a schedule in Coimbatore and is presently shooting on ECR in Chennai. The film was earlier said to be a sequel to Irumbu Thirai, but the makers have constantly refuted the rumours. With shooting going on in a brisk pace, the makers are hoping to release the film for Pongal.”
The source adds, “Even Rajinikanth had confirmed that Darbar, which is being directed by AR Murugadoss, will be a Pongal release. The film, which also stars Nayanthara, Nivetha Thomas, Prateik and Yogi Babu, has music by Anirudh and cinematography by Santosh Sivan. Looks like it will be a war at the BO during Pongal.”
