Petta Rap teaser out

Actor-choreographer-director Prabhudheva will next be seen in director SJ Sinu’s Petta Rap.

The film marks the Tamil debut of Sinu, who directed the Malayalam films Djibouti (2021) and Theru (2023).

On Saturday, 22 June, Vijay Sethupathi launched the official teaser of Petta Rap on his social media handles.

The teaser has the superhit “Petta Rap” song, from Prabhudheva’s blockbuster hit Kadhalan (1994), in the background.

The teaser also promises a wholesome entertainer with essential elements for a hit film like songs, dance, action, comedy, and of course, Prabhudheva’s charm.

Vedhika is playing the female lead in the film. It also casts Vivek Prasanna, Bagavathi Perumal, Ramesh Thilak, Mime Gobi, Riyaz Khan, and Kalabhavan Shajon in prominent roles.

Petta Rap is written by Dinil PK. The music is composed by D Imman.

The cinematography is handled by Jithu Damodhar. The editing is by Nishad Yusuf.

Produced by Jobi P Sam, Petta Rap is expected to be released later this year.

Petta Rap wrapped up its shooting in February this year and is in the post-production stage.

Prabhudheva was last seen in the Tamil film Bagheera (2023), which didn’t fare well at the box office. He also appeared in the Kannada film Karataka Damanaka alongside Shivarajkumar. The movie marked Prabhudheva’s return to Sandalwood after nearly 17 years.

The actor-choreographer is busy with some most-anticipated projects, including Thalapathy Vijay-starrer The Greatest of All Time (GOAT), under the direction of Venkat Prabhu, and Sakthi Chidambaram’s Jolly O Gymkhana.

He is also playing the lead role in Moon Walk, directed by Manoj NS (the founder and CEO of Behindwoods).

Prabhudheva is teaming up with the Oscar-winning music composer AR Rahman after a 25-year hiatus in Moon Walk. The makers released the title poster recently.
