Puli-is-on-the-lines-of-GlaActress Sridevi’s upcoming Tamil project Puli is an action adventure on the lines of Hollywood film The Gladiator, says producer Shibu Thameens.

Puli, whose teaser will be unveiled on June 22, will also be released in Hindi. The English Vinglish actress, 51, who is returning to Tamil cinema after a gap of more than two decades, is reportedly playing a queen in the fantasy film that also stars superstar Vijay.

Everyone in the South wants her back, she’s really popular here. A lot of filmmakers must have approached her here but we are happy that she heard the script and agreed to do ‘Puli’.
The film is an action-adventure on the lines of Russell Crowe’s ‘The Gladiator’.

“She is the head of a group, someone with unbelievable strength and powers”, Shibu said in a statement. Also starring Sudeep of Makkhi fame, Shruti Haasan and Hansika Motwani, the film is directed by Chimbu Deven. Co-produced by Thameens and PT Selvakumar, it is slated to release later this year.
