Prabhudeva to play a genie in My Dear Bootham


Choreographer cum Actor Prabhudheva is reuniting with Ramya Nambessan for the second time, following Karthik Subbaraj's Mercury, for a film directed by N Ragavan, who previously worked on Manjapai. The film, titled My Dear Bootham, stars Prabhudheva as a genie.

Speaking about the film, Ragavan says, "My Dear Bootham is a kids fantasy film on the lines of My Dear Kuttichathan and Raja Chinna Roja. What happens when a bunch of kids meets a genie forms the story of this film. Apart from their journey, the film will also have an underlying message similar to my previous films like Kadamban and Manjapai." The director says that Prabhudheva's character in this film will be a much-talked-about one. "We know he has a great sense of humour but in this film, he has done a brilliant job with slapstick. The film will be a comedy, fit for the entire family, laced with emotional moments."

My Dear Bootham completed shooting and is in the post-production stage. The film is scheduled to release in the first quarter of 2022. Apart from the lead actors, the film stars a bunch of child actors like Ashwanth, Alia, and Param Guganesh. The rest of the cast includes Bigg Boss-fame Samyuktha, Imman Annachi, Lollu Sabha Swaminathan.
