Vishal’s Prabhakaran: What’s in a name?
Choreographer-turned-director Prabhu Deva’s has already started shooting for his next film Prabhakaran which has Vishal and Sameera Reddy in the lead roles. The film is produced under the Vishal’s home banner GK Film Corporation.
There are reports that the film is a remake of the Telugu superhit Sowryam which had Gopichand and Anushka in the lead roles. Reportedly Sameera plays the role of a fun-loving college girl Paaro. Sameera will try her hand at comedy for the first time in this film.
Interestingly, the film’s title is also the name of late LTTE chief Velupillai Prabhakaran, which has a created a controversy in Kollywood. But Vishal has recently confirmed that his character’s name in the film is Prabhakaran, so the director felt this title would be apt for the film. However sources confirm that the team might choose an alternate title if they cannot register it.
