Writer-director Lal Jr., who made his debut with Honey Bee last year, is back with Hi I’m Tony.
It’s a thriller and the events occur in Bangalore during the course of one night and the following day.
Asif Ali plays the hero, while Lal plays the title role of Tony.
Nazriya Nazim was originally cast as the heroine, but she decided to give the film a miss as she is busy with her wedding to actor Fahadh Faasil.
Miya George will take her place as Asif’s on-screen wife.
“I am aware that Nazriya has opted out of the film. I don’t have a problem about that,” said Miya to rediff.com.
Meanwhile, the rumours doing the rounds in the industry suggest that Nazriya has bid adieu to films.
Nazriya is riding high with her latest release Bangalore Days, which has received tremendous response. This comes after the success of Ohm Shaanthi Oshaana earlier this year.
