With more than 100 films to his credit, Yuvan Shankar Raja finally stepped into production with Pyaar Prema Kaadhal last year, which went on to become a smash hit at the box office. The film starred Harish Kalyan and Raiza Wilson in the lead roles, being a Bollywood-like rom-com with a lot of lovely moments and great music. Yuvan had already started his second production last year with Vijay Sethupathi in Seenu Ramasamy’s Maamanithan, and is now ready to begin his third with Raiza once again.
Titled Alice, the film is said to be a crime thriller that will adopt a totally new narration pattern. It is written and will be directed by Mani Chandru, who was one of the associates in Pyaar Prema Kaadhal. The team initially had considered two other names for the role, but finally zeroed in on Raiza being impressed with her performance and her comfort level with the unit over the course of their last venture.
Yuvan Shankar Raja himself will be scoring both the music and the background score for this film, and will also introduce a bunch of new talents such as the DOP Ezhil Arasu and Mohan as the art director. Alice will go on floors within a couple of weeks, with a plan to hit the screens by the end of the year.
