It can be easily said, going by the line-up of his films, that 2018 could be the most exciting year in Vikram’s career in recent times.

Having welcomed the year with the lukewarm success of Sketch, Vikram’s next release of the year will be Gautham Vasudev Menon’s spy thriller Dhruva Natchathiram. He will also begin working on RS Vimal’s period drama Mahavir Karna, a multi-lingual mega budget film.

It has also been confirmed that the star will team up with filmmaker Rajesh M Selva for a yet-untitled project in Kamal Haasan’s production which will go on the floors from the second half of the year. Kamal had tweeted a few days ago that the project will be a joint collaboration between Trident Arts and his production banner, Raajkamal Films International.

While not much is known about the genre of the film, it is rumoured to be a remake of a French film.

The latest update is that Kamal Haasan may play a cameo in the film, which also stars his younger daughter Akshara Haasan, who was last seen playing a hacker in Vivegam. This will be Akshara’s second Tamil film. According to reliable sources, Rajesh Selva is keen on roping in his mentor to play a significant but small role in the film. While Kamal is yet to officially sign on the dotted line, talks have been initiated with him.

The rest of the cast is in the process of being finalised and the process will take a few months. Ghibran, who has worked with Kamal in films such as Vishwaroopam 2 and Uttama Villain, has been brought on board to compose the music.

The project will be Rajesh M Selva’s second directorial. He made his directorial debut with Thoongavanam, a remake of French film Nuit Blanche. Rajesh has also assisted Kamal on Vishwaroopam 1 and 2 and on his action comedy Sabaash Naidu, which got shelved after Kamal fractured his leg and the shoot was stalled for many months.
