We had initially reported that lawyer-turned-filmmaker Gautham Ramachandran is directing a friendship-revenge-drama in Tamil, which has Nivin Pauly in the lead. Now the buzz is that Prakash Raj is playing Nivin’s dad in this untitled flick.

The team has already finished half the portions of Prakash Raj’s in Courtallam and Manpad. He plays the role of a church father. There’s a cold war between the son and dad in the film. It’s a kind of broken relationship. They both get to see either in church or during processions.”

The team was all praise for Prakash Raj. “He’s an amazing artiste, who emotes extremely well. We really didn’t know where to say ‘cut’ when he performed,” the source added. The final schedule of this film will begin next month.
