Director Venkat Prabhu has wrapped the shooting of his upcoming film Biriyani which has Karthi and Hansika Motwani in lead roles.

The first-time pairing on-screen of Karthi and Hansika Motwani and the fact that Venkat Prabhu’s last film Mankatha was a super-duper hit has made the film an exciting prospect among distributors.

Karthi, whose last few films in Saguni and Alex Pandian haven’t fared on the expected lines at the box-office, is badly in need of a hit film to sustain his stature as one of the leading actors in Kollywood. Venkat, who has a cent percent record of hit films as a director, hopes to maintain the record.

It now turns out that soon after completing and releasing the Ajith-starrer Mankatha in 2011, Prabhu wanted to make a film starring Vijay in the lead. He reportedly approached Vijay and narrated a script which wasn’t to the star’s liking and Vijay turned the film down. Unfazed, Prabhu approached Karthi and narrated the same script. Karthi liked it and the script has now been made into Biriyani.

It may be recalled that Vijay had earlier turned down super-hit films such as Dhill and Dhool which were first offered to him. After Vijay’s refusal, they ended up at Vikram’s lap and later became super-duper hits at the box-office. It remains to be seen whether the same fate befalls Biriyani too. Prabhu has, however, not revealed the reason behind naming his film after a most popular dish in the State and the country.
