Director Mysskin is currently busy with the pre-production work of Mugamoodi which will have Jiiva in the lead. In this film, Jiiva will play the role of a super hero, which means he is all set to become Tamil cinema's first super hero. Mugamoodi will be the first super hero movie for UTV in Tamil. There were reports that Kollywood's latest sensation Amala Paul would play the female lead but the actress rubbished these reports, saying she is not a part of the film.
Narain, who has earlier worked with Mysskin in the blockbuster Anjathey, will play the villain. Narain and Jiiva will undergo special martial arts training with experts flown in from China. A super hero lies in every one of us; this forms the basic crux of Mugamoodi. It is said that consultants from IIT will create hi-end gadgets for the film and the super hero costumes will be designed by select teams from NIFT. The hunt for the heroine is on.
The film is expected to go on floors in September 2011 and will grace theatres in 2012.
