Venkat Prabhu: I am overwhelmed, working on buddy cop genre

Venkat PrabhuCinemimi[Thursday, December 08, 2011]
It's a super success for Venkat Prabhu today, his 'Mankatha' has seen a successful 100 day run at the box office.

'Mankatha' also marks the 50th film of Thala Ajith and the expectations were sky rocketing on this film even as it went on floors and the weightage on Venkat Prabhu was high from day 1 but he has satisfied Thala fans and movie goers with this movie and has managed to deliver a sleekly packed entertainer.

Speaking to IG, Venkat Prabhu says, "I am very, very happy that the film is still running in many suburbs. I am only happier that I was able to live up to the expectations from Thala fans, in fact we didn't have too much ads or any promo activity, but the film turned out to be a promo for itself, wishes are still pouring in from Thala fans".

In fact, all his four offerings, 'Chennai 28', 'Saroja', 'Goa' and now 'Mankatha' have seen a 100 day run at the BO!

So what was the reaction from Thala? "He messaged and wished me and I also sent him wishes via a SMS, since he is in Georgia for Billa 2 shoot. After he comes back we'll meet him".

On his next project Venkat says, "I have signed a bilingual with Studio Green, I am still penning the script. After penning the script I will narrate it to Suriya who is currently busy with Maatraan. It's a double hero project. It will be a buddy cop film loaded with action and comedy". He will narrate it to Ravi Teja as well after penning the script.

Buddy cop films are usually plots where two men of different preferences are forced to work together to solve a crime case. Popular examples are 'Bad Boys' and 'Rush Hour'.

After delivering a super action entertainer with Thala, it looks like Venkat Prabhu wants to do something even more different with his next venture...
