After the grand success of Beast Yogi Babu is once again on a signing spree and this time he has been booked to play the lead in a time travel film, and appear in the role of Lord Shiva. The film, titled Periyandavar, will go on floors in mid-July or August.

“I had first narrated the one-liner of Periyandavar to Yogi Babu while shooting for Kasethan Kadavulada, in which he plays an important character. Later, when he was dubbing for his role, he saw the final output of that film and told me he was totally impressed and that we should start our next film soon,” revealed Kannan who will be directing the movie.

Kannan also added that he worked on the script for three years and said. “I was inspired by Rajkumar Hirani-Aamir Khan’s PK,” he admits, and continues, “The story will touch upon the present scenario both political and societal of the country. The topic is serious, but we will treat it with a touch of humour. ”

Elaborating the story Kannan said, “Lord Shiva comes to earth and meets a girl, and the film will trace their conversations and chronicle their journey. We are in talks with a leading heroine to play the part of the girl who meets God.”

The story is set in the 60s-70s, and also in 2022. Art director Rajkumar has erected a massive set of a temple on ECR. Chelladhurai is handling the camera, while Suriya will be doing the edit. Kabilan Vairamuthu is penning the dialogues, while Kannan himself is handling the story, screenplay and production.
