Vikram Ravichandran is making his acting debut in Sandalwood and his first film is directed by Sahana Murthy. Titled Trivikrama, the film comes with the tagline ‘High Voltage Love Story’.

Touted to be a complete romantic entertainer, this film will have Vikram Ravichandran in a chocolate boy role. The search for a suitable heroine to star opposite Vikram ended with Bollywood singer Akanksha Sharma being roped in. She hogged the limelight with ‘Do Din’, an Indian pop romantic single, and Trivikrama will mark her acting debut. Akshara Gowda will be seen playing the second heroine. Sources in the know say that when Akshara was offered the role, she agreed to take it up as it had a wide scope to perform.

The makers of the film have earmarked several locations in Bengaluru, Rajasthan, Dandeli and Singapore for shooting, which is progressing at a brisk pace.

The film is bankrolled by Sommanna and Suresh under the banner Gowri Entertainers. Vikram underwent training in stunts, dance and acting to prepare himself for the debut. Arjun Janya is composing the tunes for this flick with Nagendra Prasad penning the lyrics and Santhosh Rai Pathaje handling the camera.

A recent update about Trivikrama is that Bollywood actor Rohit Roy will be joining the star cast. The actor has allotted a three-day call sheet and will be joining the team in Rajasthan where his portions will be canned. Reports suggest that Rohit’s role is very unique as it will be a mixture of good and bad characters.

It may be noted here that Vikram Ravichandran is the youngest son of V Ravichandran, Kannada film industry’s versatile actor. Vikram was supposed to make his debut with a multilingual film titled Novembernalli Naanuu Avalu, which was to be helmed by Nagashekar. The poster of the film was also released, but the project was put on the backburner. With the youngster hailing from a well-known cine family, fans are waiting eagerly for more news on Trivikrama.
