After playing a Superhero in Hero directed by PS Mithran, actor Sivakarthikeyan has currently resumed shooting for his next, a science-fiction film with director Ravi Kumar. The film has been titled Ayalaan.
Reports are rife that Sivakarthikeyan will be seen playing a triple role for the first time ever in his career in this, while an official confirmation on the same is expected.

Not long ago, rumors emerged that Sivakarthikeyan took over the reins of the project. However, he recently clarified in a media interaction that he didnâ€™t take over the project but has agreed to shoot without remuneration as the film has been on the floors for a long time.
