Musician and actor G. V. Prakash Kumar is probably the only artist in Kollywood who is simultaneously busy both as a composer and an actor. The Sivappu Manjal Pachai actor was last seen on screens in the action thriller movie Ayngaran which hit the theaters under the direction of Ravi Arasu with actress Mahima Nambiar in the female lead role. The drama opened to negative reviews from both the critics and audience alike. Thus, it ended up doing badly in the box office collection. The actor has moved on, and is now gearing up for the release of his upcoming entertainer titled Kalvan. Debutant director P V Shankar has directed the movie. Director P V Shankar has written the script of Kalvan along with writer Ramesh Aiyappan. The flick which went on floors some time ago with a small pooja ceremony has been wrapped, and is in the post production stage.
Now, the production house has launched the motion poster of the entertainer on social media along with an announcement regarding the release of the film. Kalvan will be in theaters in the summer of 2023. Taking to their official twitter account, the production house shared the motion poster and wrote, “Proud to present the motion poster of Kalvan & Chorudu – an exciting forest adventure featuring the one and only G. V. Prakash Kumar. In Theatres Summer 2023!” Here is the post made by the production house.
