Sivakarthikeyan is on a roll with successive hits under his belt. His last release, Velaikkaran, was a big hit in his career and the star is currently busy wrapping up Seema Raja, which is being directed by Ponram.
Incidentally, Sivakarthikeyan and Ponram teamed up for Varuthapadatha Vaalibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan, and both the films were big hits in their respective careers. Seema Raja is their third collaboration together and fans are hoping that they score a hat trick. With Seema Raja nearing completion, Siva is gearing up for his next.
Reports say that Siva will be joining the sets of his next film, which will be helmed by Ravi Kumar of Indru Netru Naalai fame. Sources say that this film is all about aliens, a concept new to the Tamil film industry but very successful in Hollywood.
The film, which has not been titled yet, will have Rakul Preet Singh playing the female lead. Sources in the know say that Sivakarthikeyan and team will be seen fighting it out with aliens in this flick and that it has an interesting storyline.
What makes this project even more interesting is that the Oscar winning music director AR Rahman will be composing the music. And this is the first time that ARR is scoring music for a Sivakarthikeyan starrer. The film is being bankrolled by 24 AM Studios on a huge scale considering the fact that it is touted to be a science fiction thriller.
Recently, Siva announced that heâ€™s turning producer for his best friend Arunraja Kamarajâ€™s upcoming directorial, a yet-untitled Tamil film which will be based on womenâ€™s cricket. Known for penning hit songs such as Neruppuda and Varlaam Varlaam Vaa, Arunraja is making his directorial debut with the project.
Siva, a TV host prior to his foray into films, made his debut with the Pandiraj directorial Marina, which won him the Tamil Nadu State Film Award Special Prize. He has acted in several films since then and tasted success at the box office consecutively.
