After a series of flops, Chiyaan Vikram made a decent comeback with sci-fi thriller Iru Mugan, which reportedly grossed Rs 100 crore worldwide.
Vikram is joining hands with director Vijay Chander of Vaalu fame. While the project will take off next year, reports suggest that the makers have roped Sai Pallavi of Premam fame.
Sai Pallavi had stolen many a heart with her alluring performance of a ‘Malar Teacher’ in Malayalam film, Premam. Though she was flooded with film offers, the actress, who was pursuing her graduation in medicine, carefully picked her scripts. Even Mani Ratnam, who initially roped in Sai Pallavi for his upcoming flick Kaatru Veliyidai opposite Karthi, had to replace her with Aditi Rao Hydari, when he altered the script.
Now, a close source to the film’s unit confirms that talks are on with Sai Pallavi for the powerful female lead in the city-based action entertainer. Having completed her graduation, Pallavi who is now Dr. Sai Pallvai, is busy with her Tollywood movie Fida opposite Varun Tej.
Meanwhile, grapevine is rife that Vikram and Gautham Menon are coming together for a project, which is expected to roll from next year.
Also, Vikram and Hari are once again collaborating for Saamy 2, a sequel to the blockbuster Tamil film of the same. He will also star in the Tamil remake of the Hollywood film Don’t Breathe.
