In a recent interaction with the media, Ashwin Saravanan, the director of Nayanthara's upcoming film Connect has said that he always wanted to give a bonafide horror thriller to the audiences, and hence, the Nayanthara starrer wouldn't have songs and typical comedy scenes.
Ashwin has also mentioned that he has penned the script during the lockdown and pitched the idea to Nayanthara, who loved it and also wished to produce the film under her banner.
The director also feels that the film has a Pan-India appeal and hence roped in Anupam Kher and Sathyaraj.
Produced by Nayanthara and Vignesh Shivan's Rowdy Pictures, Kavya Ram Kumar has penned the script along with Ashwin, Manikandan Krishnamachary will be cranking the camera for the film, and Prithvi Chandrasekhar has been roped in to compose the music.
The shoot of the film will begin in December.
