Newcomer Jameel is all set to direct a female-centric film with Hansika. Koteswara Raju of Jyo Star Enterprises who had produced PSV Garuda Vega 126.18M is producing the film, which will be shot in nearly seven countries.
“My film with Hansika will be shot in nearly seven countries including India, Europe, Georgia, and Mauritius. Hansika has done comedy, glamour, sentiment and many other emotions in various movies but in my film, she has scope to perform multiple emotions”, said Jameel, who worked with Hansika in films like Bogan and Romeo Juliet.
“In Bogan, there is a scene when Arvind Swamy’s soul gets into Hansika’s body. They way she emoted the villainy performance was impressive. I thought no one fully utilized her potential. To be honest, I wrote this story even before seven years but at that time, heroine-centric films were not popular”, added the director.
“I went to Mumbai to narrate the story to Hansika, she patiently listened to the story for nearly three hours and immediately given her nod. Hansika is actually too young, she is only 26 now and an actress of her age would be skeptical to accept female-centric films because many of them are afraid whether the regular mainstream roles would come in their way or not but Hansika was confident. In fact, we discussed three more hours on how to establish her character and to bring various emotions in the film”, says Jameel, who is planning to commence the shoot of the film in June.
Jameel is in talks with big names in the industry to play pivotal characters in this untitled suspense thriller and an official announcement on the cast and crew will be made in coming days. Besides this new film, Hansika also has Thuppakki Munai and a cop action film with Sam Anton and Atharvaa in the pipeline.
