Nakul will play an aspiring actor in his next film Sei. Work on the film, which will be directed by Gopalan Manoj, began with a pooja on Saturday at Prasad Lab in the city. Aanchal, who was seen in the Hindi film Ghayal Returns (2016), plays the heroine of this film. Director Gopalan Manoj, who has made films in Malayalam, said, “This is my first film in Tamil. It is about a guy who wants to be an actor and a girl who wants to be a director. While Nakul plays an actor who aspires to be a hero, Aanchal plays the wannabe director. What happens when the two meet is what the film is about.” Apart from Nakul and Aanchal, the film will feature a number of stars including Prakash Raj and Nasser. Music for the film will be scored by Nicks Lopez, while cinematography will be by Rajesh Shukla.
