The latest buzz in the industry is that the young stars of Malayalam cinema, Prithviraj, Indrajith and Jayasurya are going to share screen space together. They will come together for a film directed by mimicry artist, singer and actor Nadirshah. The new venture will be titled as "Amar Akbar Antony".

"We are planning to start the film's shoot by the end of March next year," he added. "As I am still in the putting-it-together stage, nothing more can be disclosed now."
