If the latest grapevine is anything to go by, Yogi Babu will play the lead role in an upcoming movie which will get bankrolled by acclaimed director Pa. Ranjith under his banner Neelam Productions.
A few months back, Pa. Ranjith signed a pact with Little Red Car and Singapore based production house Green Ratio Films to produce five Tamil movies. We hear that this movie is one of them. According to the sources, the makers have approached Yogi Babu recently. Currently, the talks are going on and an official announcement will get made once he signs the deal.
Apart from doing typical comical roles, Yogi Babu played an important character in the 2018 film Periyarum Perumal.
