Days after it was reported that director Vijay Chander and Vikram are teaming up for a new project that is set to go on the floors from December, it is now learnt that Premam fame Sai Pallavi is being considered for the lead role.
Talks are yet to be initiated with the actress who is currently busy shooting for Sekhar Kammulaâ€™s Telugu film, Fida, apart from a Malayalam project.
"She knows the script, and talks are on. Everyone likes the character that she did in Premam. So, we wanted to bring her to Tamil cinema. I guess itâ€™s a â€˜yesâ€™, but it has to come from her," Vijay was recently quoted as saying.
The yet-to-be-titled film will be set against the backdrop of North Madras, and it will be an actioner. Vikram has already started working out to get into his character and his look is being kept under wraps. There are also rumours that Anirudh Ravichander, who is currently ruling the charts with his music, might be roped in to compose the tunes.
Although flooded with offers, Sai Pallavi has been very choosy about her films. She was initially signed on for Mani Ratnamâ€™s Kaatru Veliyidai. However, she had to exit the project as its shoot was getting delayed and her dates for other films were clashing.
