Once Dhanush completes shooting for Prabhu Solomon’s yet-to-be-titled film, he will begin shooting for Vetrimaaran’s Vada Chennai. “My next film will be a dark film that portrays the flavour of North Chennai and I am looking forward to working with Dhanush. Can’t reveal much about the film, but it is a role Dhanush has not done so far,” says Vetrimaaran. Dhanush has meanwhile completed work on his home production VIP 2. Dhanush was previously associated with Vetrimaaran in co-producing the critically-acclaimed Kaaka Muttai.

Perils of social media

What could be the consequences of adopting false identities in social media? Director Ravi Nandha Periyasami's Jigina explores this idea. For Vijay Vasanth, who plays the lead along with Snia Thara, this is his fourth film as hero. "The plot revolves around the problems encountered by people today, who are active in different types of social media, especially Facebook. I play a call taxi driver in this romantic comedy. I'm also doing Achamindri next, in which Srushti Dange plays the heroine," says Vijay Vasanth.

Oviya: Busy at work

Kalavani was Oviya's visiting card to Tamil filmdom. She is now working in four films, shooting continuously. "I'm doing C. V. Kumar's 144 with Mirchi Shiva. I play a ghost in Hello Naan Pei Pesaren. In Bhogi, which is being made in Tamil and Telugu, I am teaming with Trisha and Poonam Bajwa. It is a fun film with no male lead. I am also doing a Kannada remake of the Tamil film Manjapai," says Oviya. Busy days are here again for this actress.
