The fourth film from Vijay Kiragandur's Hombale Films, KGF, was the phenomenal win that turned heads everywhere, and the seventh film, Kantara, showed ample proof of the massive production values they had become known for. It has recently come to light that Hombale Films is making their debut in Kollywood by bankrolling the film "Raghuthatha," which stars Keerthy Suresh in the lead role. 

Sharing the surprise update on Sunday, Keerthy Suresh took to social media and wrote, "Yek gaav mein yek kisan Raghuthathaaa! Antha Raghuthatha. Super happy to be associated for my next adventure with Hombale Films." She also shared the poster and pictures which suggested that the shooting of the flick has hit the floors.  

Director Suman Kumar, who previously worked on the script for the film Family Man, will make his directorial debut with this film.  M S Bhaskar, Devadarshini, Ravindra Vijay, Anandsami, and Rajesh Balakrishnan will play significant roles in Raghuthatha. Filming on the movie began this month, and it will hit theatres in 2023. The film is being hailed as an inspiring and humorous tale of a young woman coming into her own as she undertakes a risky mission to safeguard the cultural traditions of her people and their homeland. 

Touted to be a comedy drama, the director reportedly spoke in an statement, "Through her trials and tribulations, you see her identity emerge. Presented comedically, the film promises to make every member of the family laugh out loud and introspect after. Keerthy is the perfect choice to play the lead given her talent and versatility and we’re happy to have her on board."
