Actress Taapsee Pannu has confirmed that she will be teaming up with Vijay Sethupathi for the first time for an as-yet-untitled Tamil comedy.

Shooting for the project, which will be directed by first-timer Deepak Sundarrajan, will begin in September and be wrapped up in just 28 days.

In an interview with the entertainment website Pinkvilla.com, Pannu opened up about the project and laid some rumours to rest.

“Yes, it's a Tamil comedy that I'm doing with them along with Vijay," the actress said. "I had said yes to the script around a year ago and the director wanted me only to do this film. We were figuring out dates for this and as soon as things started opening up a bit, we quickly squeezed this one in.”

The film will be shot predominantly in and around Jaipur in Rajasthan. "I will finish the film in around 28 days and it will be shot in a very controlled environment,” Pannu said.

Last seen on the big screen in the Tamil film Game Over (2019), Pannu has another Tamil film, Jana Gana Mana, in the offing. Tipped to be a remake of Akshay Kumar’s Baby; the film stars Jayam Ravi in the lead. It is being directed by I Ahmed.

Recently, it was announced that Iranian actor Elnaaz Norouzi, who has starred in a few top TV ads, has been roped in for an important role in Jana Gana Mana. According to a recent report by Times of India, the team spotted her in Azerbaijan, and decided to rope her in as she fit the bill of her character.

“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 with Jayam Ravi’s film. She was spotted with the team in Azerbaijan, where Ravi and Taapsee were shooting. Since the film is high on action, Elnaaz has been training for it,” a source was quoted by Times of India.
