Actor Vikram, who currently awaits the release of Kamal Haasan-produced Kadaram Kondan (2019), will next join hands with director R Ajay Gnanamuthu for a yet-untitled Tamil action-thriller project. Currently dubbed as Chiyaan Vikram 58, the project will be produced by 7 Screen Studio in association with Viacom 18 Studios.
“This film will be a pan-Indian project catering to the Tamil, Hindi and Telugu audience. It will be produced on a massive scale in association with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. The cast and technicians will have big names of all industries collaborating for this film,” read a statement from the makers.
The project will go on the floors from August onwards and the makers are planning to release it in April 2020. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised.
Gnanamuthu, who rose to fame with Nayanthara-starrer Imaikka Nodigal (2018), joins hands with Vikram for the first time. It is rumoured that Vikram plays a photographer and will be sporting different avatars.
The film’s first look poster was unveiled on Tuesday and it’s a mash up of Vikram’s different avatars in the film.
Talking about his new project, Gnanamuthu told the newspaper Times of India, “The only thing I can divulge right now is that Vikram’s role will be a challenging one. Of course, he has always taken up challenging roles, but I think this one will be better than all of those.”
Meanwhile, Vikram is currently busy supervising the launch of his son Dhruv Vikram, who is making his acting debut via Adithya Varma (2019), the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy.
