Priya Bhavani Shankar, who rose to fame with Meyadha Maan and was last seen in Monster, is on a signing spree. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, she’s said to have been signed for Vikram’s next project with director Ajay Gnanamuthu.

Tentatively titled Chiyaan Vikram 58, the project was officially announced last week and is slated to go on the floors from August. Priya, who was believed to have been recently signed for Shankar’s Indian 2, is expected to be playing the female lead opposite Vikram in this film. Last week, the makers released a poster to announce that AR Rahman has been signed to compose music.

To be produced 7 Screen Studio in association with Viacom 18 Studios, the project will go on the floors from August 2019 and the makers plan to release it in April 2020. “This film will be a Pan-Indian project catering to the Tamil, Hindi and Telugu audience. It will be produced on a massive scale in association with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. The cast and technicians will have big names of all industries collaborating for this film,” read a statement from the makers.

The project marks the first-time collaboration of Vikram and Ajay, who is best known for helming Demonte Colony and last year’s Imaikkaa Nodigal starring Nayanthara. Talking about the project, Ajay told Times of India: “The only thing I can divulge right now is that Vikram’s role will be a challenging one. Of course, he has always taken up challenging roles, but I think this one will be better than all of those.” 

The first look poster, which was released in June, features Vikram in multiple avatars. There are rumors that Vikram might be seen playing a photographer in the film which will be an out-and-out action-thriller.
