Yuvan Shankar Raja has commenced his third production venture, to be directed by debutante Mani Chandru, who worked as an associate to director Elan in Pyaar Prema Kaadhal (PPK). This film, titled Alice, stars Raiza Wilson, marking her first film as a solo lead. The producer-actress duo's previous outing PPK, was a super hit and won a lot of accolades. The team had initially considered two other names for the lead role in Alice, but finally zeroed in on Raiza after being impressed with her performance and her comfort level with the unit, as evidenced in PPK.
Now, we have some interesting news regarding this project. Actress Laila, who is a much-loved actress in K-town, will be making her comeback to cinema after 13 years through this film. According to our source, “Alice will have actress Laila playing a very important role. This will be her comeback film after 2006.” Isn’t that interesting news? It was earlier being speculated by fans that Laila would be making her comeback with the sequel of her 2005 hit film Kanda Naal Mudhal. However, we also hear that the sequel plans of Kanda Naal Mudhal are on. Though we are yet to know what part she is playing in Alice, we are sure her fans will be extremely happy to see her making a comeback. Her last film in Tamil was Paramasivan in 2006, in which she paired up with Ajith Kumar.
The poster of Alice created quite a buzz among the audience. Ezhil Arasu and Arjunan Naga who assisted cinematographer Raja Bhattacharjee and editor Mani Kumaran respectively in PPK, will be handling the camera and editing for Alice. Yuvan will be composing the music for this film.
