Actress Isha Kopikar of En Swasa Kaatre and Narasimha fame is making a comeback in Kollywood with Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming sci-fi film, directed by Ravikumar.
In an interview, she has said Sivakarthikeyan reminds her of superstar Rajinikanth. “He reminds me so much of a younger version of Rajini sir that sometimes I am taken aback,” she told Times Of India.
Spilling the beans on the film, she said, “It’s something not seen before here. We have not had the concept of a well-etched out ‘alien’ in Tamil cinema before this. It’s almost as if two films are being made — one on computer and CG.”
Sivakarthikeyan, who has completed shooting for Mr Local directed by Rajesh M, recently started shooting for a new project. PS Mithran of Irumbuthirai fame is directing the movie.
KJR Studios which recently released Ajith’s Viswasam and RD Raja of 24 AM Studios will be jointly producing the film, which is tipped to be an action entertainer.
Yuvan Shankar Raja will be composing the music while Geroge C Williams and Ruben take care of editing. In Mr Local, Nayanthara is pairing up with Sivakarthikeyan for the second time after Velaikkaran directed by Mohanraja.
The film was majorly shot in Chennai, with the team travelling abroad for a song shoot. The movie is being bankrolled by K E Gnanavel Raja of Studio Green.
“Rajesh felt Mr Local will be an apt title for this subject. He doesn’t want to divulge too much about the roles. But the title, he feels, will give a glimpse into his lead character,” sources say.
