Actor Vikram and filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj are most likely to join hands for a yet-untitled Tamil project, according to reports from the industry. With a working title of Chiyaan60, the project will be produced by Seven Screen Studio. 

The hashtag Chiyaan60 has been trending since yesterday on Twitter. An official announcement regarding the project is expected soon. Also doing the rounds are the names of Santosh Narayanan and  Anirudh Ravichander, either of who is expected to be signed on as music composer.

On the career front, Vikram will be seen next in Cobra (2020). The project, which sees the actor collaborating with AR Rahman for the third time after Raavanan (2010) and I (2015), also features former Indian cricketer Irrfan Pathan, who will be making his acting debut, as the antagonist. The film also stars Srinidhi Shetty as the leading lady and will see the actor playing a photographer and donning as many as 25 different avatars.

Also produced by Seven Screen Studio in association with Viacom 18 Studios, the project went on the floors in August 2019 and marks the maiden collaboration of Vikram and director R Ajay Gnanamuthu, who is best known for helming Demonte Colony (2015) and Imaikka Nodigal (2018), starring Nayanthara.

Talking about the project, Ajay had told The Times of India daily, “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.” 

Vikram also has Mani Ratnam’s upcoming magnum opus, Ponniyin Selvan (2020) in hand. The film, which will be released in two parts, also stars Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan and Aishwarya Lekshmi among others.
