Sivakarthikeyan honours young cricketers

Directors Ponram and MP Gopi’s native Usilampatti’s Government Higher Secondary School saw a two-day cricket event organised by them.

And the winners were honoured by none other than Sivakarthikeyan. Ponram and Gopi say Sivakarthikeyan’s production venture Kanaa motivated them to organised the cricket tournament.

Meanwhile, it was recently officially announced that Sivakarthikeyan and Vignesh Shivan are all set to join hands for a project, which will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions.
Currently dubbed as SK 17, the project will mark the first time collaboration of Siva and Shivn, who have for long yearned to work together.

Reports have emerged that the film has been titled LIC, but neither the makers nor Shivan have confirmed the title which has already gone viral on social media. The project is expected to go on the floors from second half of this year.

Sivakarthikeyan’s next release is a comedy titled Mr. Local, directed by M Rajesh of Siva Manasula Sakthi, Oru Kal Oru Kannadi, and Boss Engira Baskaran fame. With Nayanthara playing the female lead, the film also features Radikaa, YouTube-fame Harija, Sathish and Yogi Babu.

The makers recently released the lyric video of one of the songs from the film, Kalakkalu Mr.Localu, sung by Sivakarthikeyan. The peppy track, which is said to be Sivakarthikeyan’s introduction song in the film, has lyrics by K R Dharan.
