The project marks the first time collaboration of Siva and Vignesh Shivn. Tentatively titled SK17, the film will go on floors by July this year and will have music by Anirudh Ravichander. It is slated to release next year. It may be noted that following the success of Suriyaâ€™s Thaana Serntha Kootam, its director Vignesh Shivn was committed to another project for producer Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green with Sivakarthikeyan. The project was slated to go on the floors last year, but later Studio Green decided to use Sivaâ€™s dates for a project with director Rajesh M, known for films such as Boss Engira Bhaskaran and All in All Azhagu Raja.
Sivakarthikeyan was last seen in the rural entertainer Seemaraja which had hit the screens last year. He also has a science-fiction film with Ravi Kumar. Recently, Siva took to Twitter to announce that he has resumed shooting for Ravikumarâ€™s project, which was rumored to have been put on hold due to budget constraints. This film also stars Rakul Preet Singh as an astronomer.
It was also announced that Siva will be collaborating with director Pandiraj who introduced the actor as a hero in his 2012 film, Marina. Tentatively referred to as SK16, the project will be bankrolled by Sun Pictures. Siva also has a project with Director PS Mithran, of Vishalâ€™s Irumbu Thirai fame. Kalyani Priyadarshan, daughter of veteran filmmaker Priyadarshan, has been roped in to play the female. The film also stars Arjun Sarja in a crucial role.The project will be bankrolled by 24 AM Studios.
