CLAP: Ilaiyaraja and Nani launch Aadhi's next sports film
The film will see Aadhi Pinisetty play a sprinter and is undergoing rigorous training for it.
We had earlier reported that Aadhi Pinisetty, who was last seen in the Tamil film Maragatha Naanayam, is all set to be playing an athlete in his next. The actor had informed his fans through Twitter that the film was set to go on floors from June 12 and so it has. Legendary music composer Ilaiyaraja and Natural Star Nani launched Aadhi Pinisetty’s new film in Chennai, this morning. This will be Aadhi’s 21st film and will be made in both Tamil and Telugu. It has also been revealed that the film has been titled Clap! The camera was switched on by none other than Allu Aravind.
Touted to be a sports drama, this film is being helmed by debutante director Prithvi. According to a report in a leading media, the film will see Aadhi playing a sprinter and he’s currently undergoing rigorous training to look the part. The film will be shot in Hyderabad, Chennai, Bangalore and Madurai, reportedly. Aakanksha Singh, who is playing the role of the lead actress, will also be seen as a sportsperson in this film. Reports in the media also state that there will be a second actress but nothing has been announced about that as of yet. Reports also state that noted music director Devi Sri Prasad may be on-board for this film, while Chirantan Das of Tanu Weds Manu fame will be handling the cinematography.
The producers deciding to make this film as a bilingual is sure a great idea as Aadhi is pretty famous both in the Tamil and Telugu regions. Hopefully, we will soon get to know more details about this project. The actor’s last outing in Telugu was Rangasthalam and he performed pretty well in the film. Aadhi was also supposed to star in the Tamil remake of the Telugu blockbuster RX 100 but no news has been out on it, since. Stay tuned…Read More
