From R to L - Gopichand, B

Telugu actor Gopichand, known for films such as "Wanted", "Golimaar" and "Souryam", is all set to foray into Tamil cinema with his upcoming yet untitled film with ace filmmaker B. Gopal.

It will be simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu.

The film, which also features Nayanthara in the lead role, was officially launched here Friday.

"It's a bilingual and we are planning to make Gopichand dub in Tamil as well. I can't talk much about the film at this stage. It's an action entertainer and the first schedule will go on floors from Sep 1 in Switzerland," B. Gopal told IANS.

The film's unit is expected to shoot in Switzerland for nearly a month, followed by shooting in different parts of southern India.

While Gopichand's Telugu films have been dubbed in Tamil over the years, this will be the first time that he will do a straight Tamil film.

The yet untitled film will be produced under the banner Jaya Balajee Real Media. Manisharma has been roped in to compose the music.
