The trailer of Prabhudheva’s upcoming film Bagheera was released on Friday. Written and directed by Adhik Ravichandran, the film is billed as a psycho-thriller.
The trailer has Prabhudheva appearing in multiple looks and looks quite menacing in some of the shots. He plays a blood-thirsty psychopath who targets young women.
The actor seems to have pushed himself out of his comfort zone to give us a whacky thriller, filled with usual over-the-top dance numbers, glamour and dollops of dark humour. And by the looks of it, it is going to offend a lot of sensibilities.
Adhik Ravichandran made his debut with the 2015 adult comedy Trisha Illana Nayanthara. The film, starring G. V. Prakash Kumar, was surprisingly lauded by critics and the audience. Later, he directed Simbu in Anbanavan Asaradhavan Adangadhavan. The movie ran into a lot of trouble after Adhik had a fall out with Simbu over the latter’s alleged tardiness. The film bombed at the box office and was berated by critics.
Bagheera is bankrolled by Bharathan Pictures and has music by Ganesan Sekar.
Besides Prabhudeva, the film also stars Amyra Dastur, Ramya Nambeesan, Janani Iyer, Sanchita Shetty, Gayathrie Shankar, Sakshi Agarwal, and Sonia Agarwal.
Other than Bagheera, Prabhudheva has Poikkal Kuthirai, Bagheera, Pon Manickavel, Yung Mung Sung, and Oomai Vizhigal in various stages of production. The Mercury actor is currently shooting for debutant director Sam Rodrigues’ untitled film that has him playing the role of an IPS officer.
Adhik, on the other hand, has Kadhalai Thedi Nithya Nandha with GV Prakash coming up.
