The film titled, Idhu Vedhalam Sollum Kadhai, has been written and will be directed by the debutant director Rathindran Prasad.

IVSK is an action-adventure, graphic novel-esque pulp fiction,” said Deol when speaking to Mumbai Mirror about his first Tamil language film.

“It’s wonderful to be a part of someone’s passion project and bring his vision to the screen. Yes, I had to speak Tamil — ancient Tamil — but Rati would laugh, that for me any Tamil was Greek and Latin," adds the Mumbai Mirror report.

Meanwhile, the actor has just seen the launch of his next horror-comedy, Nanu Ki Jaanu about a love story based in the after-life, along with Citylights actress Patralekhaa.

He is also, almost finished shooting for the sci-fi movie JL-50, along with co-star Piyush Mishra, where Deol plays a CBI detective, and a cameo in Shah Rukh Khan’s Zero, opposite Katrina Kaif. The talented actor has also been busy with an international project, the bi-lingual American production The Field, which has been shot in India and is 70 percent in Hindi.
