"Youth superstar Prithviraj Sukumaran joins and feels like our film family is complete. Shoot is about to kick off any day from now. Title and other news will be updated soon.

Roshni, who has worked as a costume designer and stylist for the past 15 years in Tamil, Kannada and Telugu industries, is set to make her debut as a director with the romantic musical entertainer, which she calls "a cute little love story." 

Scripted by Shankar Ramakrishnan, the untitled movie will have five to six songs composed by Shaan Rahman. R. Rathnavelu, who has cranked the camera for "Enthiran" and "Lingaa," will handle the cinematography of the film, which will be completely shot in Europe, mainly in Portugal and Spain over almost 55 days. Priyank Premkumar, who won the best editor award during the Cannes Film Festival, does the editing in the romantic entertainer. Bishwadeep Chatterjee, who has worked in the Bollywood films "Bajirao Mastani," "Devdas," "P.K.," "3 Idiots," and "Madras Cafe" is the sound engineer of the Prithviraj-starrer.

The director has promised that she will reveal the details about the other cast and crew and movie's title in the coming days. The film is being produced by Roshni under the banner of Roshni Dinaker Productions and is expected to hit the screens in December this year.
