Recently, a poster stirred up a hornet’s nest over the release of Kadaram Kondan, which has Vikram in the lead role. It claimed that the film would be released on May 21. However, the production house bankrolling the project was quick to come out with a clarification, while it was also found that the poster was fan-made.
Trident Arts posted, “#KadaramKondan Post Production in progress... Release date yet to be decided!!! More updates soon #Vikram @RajeshMSelva @RKFI.” The makers also revealed that the first single from the film will be released on May 1.
Directed by Rajesh Selva, Kadaram Kondan is bankrolled by Kamal Haasan under his banner Raaj Kamal Films International. The film stars Kamal’s daughter Akshara Haasan opposite Vikram. Besides playing the hero in this action thriller, Vikram will also be rendering a motivational track for the movie. Music composer Ghibran had wanted the star to do the playback singing, to which Vikram readily agreed. The post-production is happening full swing right now.
The technical crew besides Ghibran for music direction includes Srinivas R Gutha for cinematography and Praveen KL for editing.
While Vikram’s previous release was Samy Square last year, currently he has Dhruva Natchathiram and Mahavir Karna in his kitty. Dhruva Natchathiram is a spy thriller that has him playing the lead. The film has Simran, R Parthiepan, Aishwarya Rajesh and Ritu Varma in the star cast. Written and directed by Gautham Menon, it will have music by Harris Jayaraj and cinematography by Jomon T John, Santhana Krishnan Ravichandran and Manoj Paramahamsa, while Praveen Anthony is the editor. Dhruva Natchathiram is a high-budget movie that is being bankrolled jointly by Ondraga Entertainment and Escape Artists Motion Pictures. Lyca Productions has bagged the distribution rights.
In Mahavir Karna, a bilingual project directed by RS Vimal, Vikram plays the title role in the film and is preparing himself to get into the skin of the character. The project went on the floors recently in Ramoji Filmcity, Hyderabad. It is a high-budget movie bankrolled by United Film Kingdom on a budget of Rs 300 crore.
