Following in the footsteps of several stars like Suriya, Raghava Lawrence and GV Prakash Kumar, actor Jiiva is the latest to jump on the horror bandwagon with his yet-untitled upcoming Tamil outing, which is currently on the floors.
"This is Jiiva's first tryst with the horror genre. The film is currently being shot in Palani, where it will be filmed for nearly a month, followed by 20-day schedule in Chennai. Although it'll be a no-nonsense horror film, there will be some elements of humour," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
The film is being directed by Hari, an erstwhile assistant of Kamal Haasan. Comedian Soori and Sri Divya have been roped in for the flick.
The movie, which has music by Vishal Chandrasekhar, also stars Radikaa Sarath Kumar, Divyadarshini and Thambi Ramaiah in prominent roles.
The project is jointly produced by Fox Star Studios and film-maker Atlee's production house, A for Apple Entertainment.
