Actor-director Prabhu Deva and Oscar-winning composer A R Rahman are reuniting for a project after 25 years. The duo will work on a film that will be directed by Manoj NS, founder and CEO of Behindwoods.

The film is Behindwood’s first feature film production. The film is touted to be a dance musical. “The director’s unique vision is to make the theaters the happiest place for two hours, by celebrating music, dance, comedy and visuals. There will be no blood, gore or violence in any form in the movie. We are confident it will be a landmark movie in Indian cinema history,” said the film team in a release.

A R Rahman said, “A particular idea had been on my mind for quite some time, but I had set it aside. However, this project rediscovered it and captured my attention once again.” Talking about the project, Prabhu Deva said, “Excited to once again partner with the music dynamite that inspired choreographers.”

Tentatively titled #arrpd6, the film is the six project involving A R Rahman and Prabhudeva. The movie will go on floors in May this year and is slated for a Pan-India release in 2025.
