Prakash Raj is undoubtedly one of the most sought after character artistes in South India. The actor, who does not have any language barrier, has worked in all the leading film industries and hence it comes as no surprise that the actor has bagged two big projects in different languages.
He has been roped in to play key roles in a Kannada movie starring Sudeep and Mani Ratnam's untitled Tamil flick.
Kiccha Sudeep, who is getting ready to act in Vijay's 58th Tamil flick, confirmed the news and said that he is very excited to work with Prakash Raj for the first time. Even though they know each other well, the duo has not shared screen space until now for one or the other reason. Now, Nanda Kishore of "Victory" and "Adhyaksha" fame is bringing them together for his project "Ranna", which is a remake of Telugu super hit "Attarintiki Daredi."
The Kannada movie features yesteryear actress Madhoo ("Roja" fame), Haripriya and Rachita Ram in key roles.
The Tamil film industry is excited about Prakash Raj teaming up with Mani Ratnam. The actor announced the news on Twitter and shared his joy with his followers. "Super super charged up to be a part of mani rathnam s new film. Loved the script n the role he narrated to me. Life is richer. Cheers !!!!!" he tweeted.
Mani Ratnam and Prakash Raj have previously worked together in films such as "Bombay", "Iruvar", which brought a National Award for the actor, and "Kannathil Muthamittal". As far as the Tamil flick is concerned, there are reports that the director is remaking his own classic "Mouna Raagam." Two-time Oscar winner AR Rahman will compose the music and PC Sreeram will handle the cinematography. Other details about the movie are under wraps.
