Composer turned actor GV Prakash has been concentrating on his acting projects and music projects. Recently, GV Prakash took to social media to announce his upcoming film, Selfie, directed by debutant Mathi Maran. Mathi Maran was associated with director Vetri Maran. In the film, GV Prakash will be sharing the screen space with Gautham Vasudev Menon. Varsha Bollamma will play the female lead in the film. Director Mathi Maran told the Times of India that the film is a campus-based story that revolves around the lives of college students.
Speaking to the daily, Mathi Maran said, "This is a college story, but revolves around incidents that happen outside the campus. College students have a life outside of their campus, and it is one aspect of their lives that I have touched upon. He is one of the very few heroes today who can carry off the role of a college student, so I felt he would be apt for the role. All I can say for now is that I wouldn’t call him the antagonist. This will not be a typical film about the face-off between a hero and a villain. The world of Selfie is bigger and many characters will play crucial roles in the script."
