When filmmaker Prem helms a project, he makes sure that it is anything but ordinary. The director of The Villain is scouting far and wide to get the best of the best for his film. Keeping with that spirit, he has now managed to bring in B-Town’s Dada, Mithun Chakraborty, to Sandalwood.

This will mark the 350 films-old-actor’s Sandalwood debut. Though the filmmakers are tightlipped about casting, our source tells us that that the B-Town legend will be shooting with Sudeep.

“The actor will be joining the sets of The Villain at Belagavi from next week, and later, the team will be leaving for London on May 20. However, there is no confirmation if he will be part of the  London shoot,” our source adds.

For Mithun, who has been on a long break, The Villain will be a comeback film. With Shivarajkumar and Sudeep in the lead, Mithun’s debut in the film has us wondering about what role he’ll play, or whether he’ll be shooting with Shivarajkumar.

Sruthi Hariharan and Telugu actor Srikanth are part of the ensemble cast, but the team is still looking for a heroine. Made under Tanvi Films, The Villain is produced by CR Mohar with Arjun Janya’s music.
