Seems like the success of the Tamil flick Billa has given a boost to its leading stars -- Ajith and Nayanthara.

Special: Showcasing Billa

Now the two are all set to star in Ayngaran International's film Aegan, which will be directed by choreographer Raju Sundaram, actor-director Prabhu Deva's [Images] brother.

Produced by Karunamoorthy and Arunpandiayan, the film is rumoured to be a remake of Farah Khan's [Images] Bollywood film, Main Hoon Na.

Others in the cast include Jayaram, Suhasini Manirathnam, Suman, Nasser, M S Baskar, Sriman and Navdeep of Arinthum Ariyamalum fame.

This will be Raju Sundaram's directorial debut. Raju Sundaram, who has choreographed more than 1000 songs in his career was earlier supposed to direct Dhanush's Parattai, but he opted out of the film.

Raju Sundaram has also scripted the film. S Ramakrishnan, who has written dialogues for Sandakozhi and Baba, pens the dialogues while Arjun Jana is the cinematographer.

The film's shooting is already underway in Hong Kong. From there the unit will be off to shoot songs composed by Yuvan Shankar Raaja (he composed for Billa too) in Australia, New Zealand [Images] and England [Images].
