Already spearheading Baahubali producers Arka Media’s digital debut, a big-budget political drama for Disney+Hotstar, actor Naveen Chandra, sources tell us, has now green-lit another leading banner, UV Creations, next. According to a source close to the production house, the actor is headlining an untitled mystery drama that has already gone in front of the cameras.
The source informs us exclusively, “The project marks the directorial debut of Rakesh Varma who has been with UV with the script for over one year. He has made short films in the past, and is directing the feature from his own script. The stilluntitled film has been shot for over a week until now in the outskirts of Hyderabad and in another 25 days, the entire shoot will be wrapped up. Rakesh has written a whacky edgeof-the-seat thriller which revolves around five principal characters.
Ravi Varma, Ali Reza and Bhargavi are playing supporting roles. Revered cinematographer Madhu Ambat’s son Darshan is lensing it.” The source adds that UV is producing the project under their new banner, UV Concepts. “The banner has been floated to associate with small to medium budget content-rich cinema, while UV Creations will continue to produce big-budget cinema. The murder mystery is one of the many projects UV Concepts has lined-up this year,” the source concludes.
