Last seen on screen playing a blue-collared worker in Velaikkaran, Sivakarthikeyan awaits the release of rural comedy Seemaraja, which marks his reunion with Rajini Murugan director Ponram.
Meanwhile, Siva has signed a new film with director Rajesh, best-known films such as SMS and Boss Engira Bhaskaran. In May, the yet-untitled Siva-Rajesh was launched in a ceremony in Chennai.
Also starring comedian Sathish in a crucial role, the film will be bankrolled by Studio Green and is slated to go on the floors very soon. On Monday evening, the makers announced via a poster that the film will have music by Hip-Hop Tamizha. The project is currently dubbed as SK 13.
Nayanthara has been signed as the leading lady. This would be the second time Siva and Nayanthara will be seen sharing screen space after last year's Velaikkaran. Siva was to join hands with Thaana Serntha Kootam director Vignesh Shivn for a project with Studio Green.
For reasons unknown, Vignesh opted out of the project and the makers were left with no option other than roping in Rajesh as they didnâ€™t want to waste Sivaâ€™s dates. Siva had committed to a project with Studio Green over two years ago and the project is finally taking off after a few initial hiccups.
Talking about the genre of the film, Rajesh had told Times of India: â€śSivakarthikeyan is a huge star among the kids and family audience love him to bits. So, this one will be a complete family entertainer which has its heart in its place.â€ť
Siva also has a science-fiction film with Ravi Kumar in his kitty. This yet-untitled project will have music by AR Rahman and it is slated to go on floors soon. Said to be an ambitious project to be made on a lavish budget, it is rumoured that Siva will be seen fighting aliens in the film.
