Last seen playing a conniving politician in Rajinikanth's 'Kaala', actor Nana Patekar has been signed for a pivotal role in Jayam Ravi's upcoming Tamil spy thriller. While the makers are yet to make an official announcement, sources close to the team have confirmed that Nana has already been signed.
This will be Nana's first project since he was named in 'Me Too' by actor Tanushree Dutta. Tipped to be a remake of Akshay Kumar starrer 'Baby', Nana is the latest addition to the film which will also star Taapsee Pannu, Shriya Saran, and Arjun among others.
Directed by I Ahmed on a lavish budget, the movie marks the maiden collaboration of the filmmaker and Ravi, who is basking in the phenomenal success of 'Comali'. Makers of the film also recently signed Iranian actor Elnaaz Norouzi for a key role in the film.
“Elnaaz has done several ad films for top brands in the country. She became a household name, thanks to her performance, especially in dual roles, in a popular Hindi series. Soon after, she was flooded with offers from the south and now, she's set to make her debut in Kollywood,” a source said.
