We informed recently that the talented Karthick Naren’s next film is titled as Mafia and that it is bankrolled by none other than the popular production house Lyca. The film has Arun Vijay, Prasanna and Priya Bhavani Shankar as the leads. The film went on floors on July 6th in Chennai and is to be completed in a single schedule lasting for thirty-five days. The first look poster of the film amped up the excitement of the fans as it had Arun Vijay in three different looks. It was also revealed that Prasanna will play the antagonist. Producers Lyca took to their social media handle on Friday to inform the name of his character.
They shared a picture which shows the actor dressed stylishly with shades and taking a puff with a caption that said 'DK the antagonist' tagging actor Prasanna. The backdrop appears to be out of focus and looks like a bar. Seemingly the team is on their job meticulously. Prasanna has essayed different kinds of roles and it was his portrayal as a villain in Mysskin’s Anjaathey that revealed to the world that the talented actor can also go to the other end of the spectrum.

Right now, the unit is busy shooting with the three key artists. The names of other supporting cast members are expected to be revealed as part of the promotional strategy slowly. When it comes to the technical team, Jakes Bejoy, who worked with Karthick Naren in Dhruvangal Pathinaaru, is the music composer for Mafia too. Gokul Benoy, who cranked the camera in the recently released Monster and Raatchasi, is the DoP in this film. Earlier, Karthick had mentioned that Mafia is a gangster film in an urban backdrop which will be very stylish. The first look poster of Arun Vijay and also this poster of Prasanna seem to reiterate the fact.Read More
