RJ Balaji’s latest movie LKG turned out to be a commercial hit. He was seen as the lead actor in LKG as opposed to playing hero’s side kick.
Priya Anand played the lady lead in LKG.
Apart from playing the lead role, Balaji wrote the story and script for LKG – and it had worked out well.
Following LKG’s success, Balaji is determined to do the writing on his own for his next venture too.
And while thinking about the cast for this movie, Balaji has approached Nayanthara.
After hearing the story, Nayanthara has said a big Yes to this project.
The movie is named Mookkuthi Amman and the project will be produced by Isari Ganesh under his banner Vels Film International – the same production house that bankrolled LKG.
Nayanthara and Balaji were seen together on screen last in Naanum Rowdy Dhaan that was directed by Vignesh Shivan.
Nayanthara is currently working in Netrikann – a project that’s bankrolled by Vignesh Shivan’s Rowdy pictures – his first production.
Aval fame Milind Rau is directing Netrikann which is a woman-centric thriller where Nayanthara plays a blind woman.
It is believed that Nayan has agreed to give her call sheet for Mookkuthi Amman after wrapping up with Netrikann.
Mookkuthi Amman is in its pre-production stage as of now.
