Meera Mithun is also part of the cast in this yet-untitled film.

In June, it was reported that Vikram will soon join hands with director Rajesh M Selva in Kamal Haasan’s production for a yet-untitled project. In January earlier this year, a Times of India report said that the film will be a remake of a French flick and this still remains unconfirmed. On Thursday, the film was launched in Chennai and the team began filming.  

Having recently wrapped up his portion for Gautham Menon’s Dhruva Natchathiram, Vikram is expected to start shooting full-fledged from next week. This yet-untitled film is expected to be wrapped up by October or November, enabling Vikram to start working on his upcoming magnum opus Mahaveer Karna. 

In a statement, it was announced that the project happens to be the 45th production of RaajKamal Films International. Apparently, Vikram won’t have a romantic interest in Rajesh’s film, despite the film featuring two female leads – Akshara Haasan and Meera Mithun.  

Kamal Hassan may play a cameo in the film. According to reliable sources, Selva is keen on roping in his mentor to play a significant but small role in the film. 

Ghibran has been finalised to compose music for this project, to be made as a Tamil-Telugu bilingual in association with R. Ravindran of Trident Arts.  

If everything goes as planned, Vikram might have three releases this year.  Having welcomed the year with the lukewarm success of action-thriller Sketch, Vikram is eagerly looking forward to the release of Saamy Square, the highly anticipated sequel to his 2003 blockbuster Saamy. In between his acting assignments, Vikram is also busy putting together the perfect launch pad for his son Dhruv, who is making his acting debut with Varma, the Tamil remake of Arjun Reddy

Meanwhile, there are also rumours that Dhruva Natchathiram is being planned as a trilogy. The film’s pending talkie portion should be completed by next month. The project, originally planned to be made with Suriya, marks the first collaboration of Gautham and Vikram. The film also casts Aishwarya Rajesh, Ritu Varma, Simran and Radikaa Sarath Kumar among others.
