Simran and Trisha, who are considered two of the biggest southern female superstars and were last seen in actor Rajinikanth’s Petta (2018), are all set to work together in an action adventure film again. To be directed by Sumanth Radhakrishnan, the yet-untitled film will be bankrolled by All In Pictures, according to a statement released by the makers.
The statement further added that the project will go on the floors from first week of March and will be shot in Chennai, Kerala, Pichavaram and Thailand.
Simran and Trisha will be seen playing siblings in the film. Talking to The Times of India, Sumanth opened up about the project.
“This is a unique script, with water playing a big part in this adventure film. When I wrote the script, I felt I needed to cast leading actresses, who have mutual admiration for each other. Then it struck me that I can cast Trisha and Simran,” he said.
“They both like each other and share an easy camaraderie on the set. I first went with the script to Simran. She really loved it and gave me a lot of references. Trisha, too, liked the script a lot. And that’s how they came on board. This is not a drama, but a commercial outing with special stunts,” Sumanth added.
In preparation for the role, Trisha and Simran will undergo marine level training. The film will feature underwater action sequences.
