Pa Ranjith is a famous Tamil director, producer and social activist in the film industry. He is best known for making maverick films that also stand for a good social cause. There are high expectations for his upcoming films following the big success of his last release 'Sarpatta Parambarai'.

Recently, Ranjith revealed his upcoming movies lineup in his pipeline at the Cannes International Film Festival 2022. We already updated you about his project with Kamal Haasan, 'Chiyaan 61', 'Vettuvam' and 'Birsa Munda'. Now, we have exclusive details about the mentioned projects.

Ranjith's immediate next is the coming of age film 'Natchathiram Nagargirathu' starring Dushara Vijayan, Kalaiyarasan and Kalidas Jayaram. This movie is set in the backdrop of Tamil theatre art and explores multiple facets of love, including straight and LGBTQ romances. Jointly bankrolled by Neelam Productions and Yaazhi Films, the makers are targetting a July release.

Then, Pa Ranjith will start his next film with Vikram tentatively titled 'Chiyaan 61'. Jointly bankrolled by Neelam Productions and Studio Green, it is set in the backdrop of Karnataka's Kolar Gold fields, revolving around miners who discovered gold in the 19th century. Reportedly, Ranjith was due to start the film after his blockbuster “Kabali” but decided to wait until the two “K.G.F.” films, which have the same backdrop.

Following it, Ranjith will complete 'Vettuvam', a linked film and series. It revolves around a rural gangster, a modern-day Robinhood who surrenders to cops to evade his enemies, only to land in a prison which is even worse. Set mostly in the prison, Vettuvam will focus on the protagonist's fight against injustice.

Ranjith will move to his most-awaited venture with the legendary Kamal Haasan once he finishes 'Vettuvam'. Set in the Madurai backdrop, the movie, bankrolled by Raaj Kamal Films International, will tackle a major issue. Finally, Ranjith will make his Bollywood debut with the Hindi biopic drama of Indian tribal freedom fighter Birsa Munda. All these projects will be executed over the next three years.

Last but not least, Ranjith opened up about the plans of a three-season series set in times before and after the period depicted in Sarpatta Parambarai - from colonial times till the 90s. This show will explore Indian society through the lens of Boxing history. Meanwhile, Ranjith also revealed three upcoming films of Neelam Productions: 'Dandakaranyam', 'I11' and 'Kizhakinthiya Company'.
