Scriptwriter Kona Venkat has announced he will release the first look of director AL Vijay's untitled movie starring Prabhudheva and Tamannaah Bhatia March 30.

This yet-to-be-titled film is touted to be a horror comedy entertainer, produced by MVV Prabhaker. Kona Venkat ‏took to his Twitter handle to make the announcement. The screenwriter tweeted: "Releasing the first look of our film on 30th March.. @tamannaahspeaks & @PDdancing directed by Vijay .. The story that took me by surprise!! [sic]"

He feels it will be another trendsetter in Telugu after "Geethanjali." Venkat ‏tweeted: "After 'Geethanjali' this movie, I strongly believe is going to create a new trend in TFI.. @tamannaahspeaks is going to b at her peaks !! [sic] " He added: "In horror comedy @PDdancing & @tamannaahspeaks movie will set standards which will be followed by many in future.. Thanks to Dir Vijay ..... [sic]"

Thaman Shivakumar has been roped in to compose music for the movie, and has said he is excited to be a part of the film. The music director tweeted: "@konavenkat99 congrats & thanks Kona Ji :) happy to be a small part of this super excited :) [sic]" In reply, Kona Venkat wrote: "I sincerely thank u bro for being a part of this movie !! Ur song is going to be the best in the movie .. [sic]"

Meanwhile, Venkat had said in an interview his next movie would be called "Pathala Bhairavi." Howeber, there is no confirmation on this title yet. The film will be a bilingual one, made in Telugu and Tamil, with AL Vijay at the helm.

Kona Venkat, who has used classic titles like "Geethanjali" and "Sankarabharanam," has reportedly planned to use another classic film's title — "Pathala Bhairavi." Its title is inspired by the NTR and SV Ranga Rao-starrer movie, but it has no connection to the original.

This movie features Sonu Sood in a key role.

Kona Venkat is one of the most successful writers in Tollywood, but suffered a big setback in recent months. His movies "Dictator," "Soukhyam," "Shankarabharanam," "Bruce Lee: The Tiger" and "Akhil: The Power of Jua" failed to make it big in the box office. He hopes "Pathala Bhairavi" will bring back his lost glory.
