Rumours have been doing the rounds on the Internet that Ajith's next, Viswasam, has been dropped as the makers weren't happy with director Siva helming the film. The makers have trashed the rumors and sources from the team have confirmed that the shooting will commence on March 23 at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad.

Some important portions of the film will be shot in this schedule and the Viswasam team is moving over to Mumbai where the rest of the portions will be canned. Directed by Siva, the film is being bankrolled by Thiagarajan’s Sathya Jyothi Films on a huge budget.

Viswasam has Nayanthara playing the female lead with actors Thambi Ramaiah, Yogi Babu and Robo Shankar in supporting roles. While there were reports surfacing recently that it is a horror flick, sources close to the film have clarified that it will be a complete commercial entertainer with north Chennai as its backdrop. D Imman, who will be joining hands for the first time with Ajith, has been finalised to compose the music.

Siva made his directorial debut with the Telugu flick Souryam in 2008 and went on to direct Ajith for the first time in Veeram (2014). He then went on to wield the megaphone for Vedhalam in 2015 and Vivegam in 2017. Siva and Ajith are teaming up for the fourth time and fans are eager to know what they will be coming up with this time around.

Ajith’s debut in Tamil was with Amaravathi and after a lot of struggle to find a spot in the cine industry, he has emerged successful. Some of his career best include Kadhal Mannan, Vaali, Amarkalam, Kandukondain Kandukondain, Billa, Mankatha, etc. With Viswasam being Ajith’s fourth film with Siva, movie buffs are waiting with anticipation to know more about it. Well, for now it is clear that it is not a horror flick.
