Mumbai: Film producer Kumar Taurani is set to launch his son Girish in a musical opposite Shruti Haasan.

"The film will be a musical love story and Prabhu Deva will direct it. We will start preparations from August 1. We have not finalised on the name for the film yet," he said.

"We will be shooting the film abroad as well as Mumbai, Pune, and some parts of Himachal Pradesh," he added.
