Bhogi is an upcoming Tamil and Telugu bilingual film directed by Pandian, starring Trisha, Oviya and Poonam Bajwa in leading roles. The film, which is simultaneously being made in Telugu with the title Memu, began production in 2013.[2][3]



In early 2013, actress Trisha signed on to appear in a multi-starrer, "female-centric" bilingual film directed by Pandian, who had earlier made Priyam (1996). Trisha chose to work on the film alongside another Telugu film of the same genre, Rambha Urvasi Menaka directed by M. S. Raju, which featured her alongside actresses Nikesha Patel, Isha Chawla and Charmy Kaur. Pandian's film, titled Kannaale Kannan, was said to feature Trisha alongside Poonam Bajwa and Remya Nambeesan, though Remya was later replaced by Oviya. The film had an official launch in May 2013, with the makers revealing that Samuthirakani and Thambi Ramiah would also feature in the project.[4][5] The story was initially reported in the media to be a "thriller with a female-centric concept", though the team later clarified it would be a "feel good entertainer" focusing on the trio's friendship.[6] In late 2013, the film was considered to be shelved after Trisha could not provide dates for the film. Furthermore, her other female-centric film, Rambhha Urvasi Menaka was shelved midway through production, prompting Trisha to reconsider working on Kannaale Kannan despite having shot for two schedules.[7][8]

After an extended break throughout 2014, the actresses continued to work on the film in February 2015.[9][10] The Tamil film was titled as Bhogi, while the Telugu film was titled Taken over by shradvn production
