Udhaya's next is titled 48 hours

Actor Udhaya’s next project will be helmed by debut filmmaker Abdul. Tipped as a thriller, the movie, according to Udhaya, will have him in a different get-up. Titled 48 hours, Naren Balakumar will compose music for the movie, which will have editing by Sam Lokesh. Another upcoming project of Udhaya’s, Agni Natchathiram, too, has Sam doing the cuts.

He says, “The title 48 Hours is much relevant to the topic of the film, but we can’t reveal it now. The crux of the film is about how anger brings out a change in its protagonist. Whether it’s a good change or a bad one, and how he comes out of it forms the plot. The making and screenplay will remind one of a Gautham Menon film.”

Udhaya adds that the shooting of the movie will begin by December end or January 2021. The project will be set in Chennai. Agni Natchathiram, which has him and Vidhaarth playing lead roles, has 15 days of production left, and shooting of both the projects will happen simultaneously.
