Sivakarthikeyan is on cloud nine with his Midas touch continuing. His last release, Velaikkaran, is a hit and his upcoming film with Ponram is progressing at breakneck speed. Touted to be a village-based film, the latter as-yet untitled flick will have Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Simran, Napoleon and Soori in pivotal roles, with 24 AM Studios producing it.
The latest we hear about his next project is that he is in talks with Thaana Serntha Kootam director Vignesh Shivan and that the talks are moving in the right direction. Reports indicate that the film, with the working title Kaathuvaakla Rendu Kadhal, will be bankrolled by KE Gnanavel Raja under his banner Studio Green and the project is expected to go on the floors from March.
After wrapping up his film with Vignesh Shivan, Siva will be moving over to the R Ravi Kumar directorial, which is touted to be a biggie. The Indru Netru Naalai fame director will be wielding the megaphone for this venture, which will have Oscar winner AR Rahman composing the tunes with 24 AM Studios bankrolling it. Indru Netru Naalai was a science fiction comedy film that had Vishnu Vishal and Mia George playing the lead pair. Released a couple of years ago, the film opened to positive reviews and did well at the box office.
With Sivakarthikeyan having an interesting line-up of films in his kitty, his fans are in for an exciting treat this year.
Meanwhile, his Velaikkaran, which was directed by Mohan Raja, is doing well at the box office. The film that released on 22 December last year is estimated to have collected about Rs 51 crore at the box office. Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil made his debut in the Tamil film industry with this flick and Nayanthara played the female lead. Prakash Raj, Sneha and Vijay Vasanth were also seen playing supporting roles.
