Actor Prashanth, who has been around for close to three decades as a hero in Kollywood, has been paired up opposite curvaceous Sanchita Shetty in his next film titled as Johny, a title which has been borrowed from a super-duper hit film starring superstar Rajinikanth and Sridevi in the lead and which released in early eighties.
Vetriselvan is the film’s director while Thiagarajan is the producer. Johny is an action-based suspense thriller, the films crew informs. “The climax in the film gets underway within 15 minutes of the commencement of the film’s screening,” the producer said.
Prabhu, Anandaraj, Ashutosh Rana, Sayaji Shinde, Kalairani, Devadarshini, Suganthan and Sandhya play prominent roles in the film which is to release in theatres only in early 2018. “The script would be a racy one and would offer a very different experience to the audience,” the director points out.
It turns out that the film’s crew first signed up a newcomer, who is also a popular model, to star opposite Prashanth. After three days of shoot, they found out that model couldn’t emote or act and then went ahead and replaced her with Sanchita Shetty, who has already had three films releasing in this year.
