Super-5 for Sivakarthikeyan

Giving tough fight to his close competitor Vijay Sethupathi who is doing back to back films, Sivakarthikeyan is now doing five movies simultaneously.

Already busy with Mr Local, a sci-film directed by Ravikumar, Mithran-directed flick and a Sun Pictures movie helmed by Pandiraj, Sivakarthikeyan has now signed a project with director Vignesh Shivan.

Lyca’s Subaskaran, who will be producing this venture, announced the same on his official Twitter page. “The film will roll by July and will hit screens next year. The rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalised,” sources said.

Sivakarthikeyan will again be teaming up with Anirudh for this film. Though Rashmika Mandanna’s name is doing the rounds for the lead actress, there is no official confirmation about this.

Anirudh Ravichander, the young sensation who has composed many hit songs for both Vignesh and Sivakarthikeyan will be in charge of music for the project.

Lyca, which recently bankrolled superstar Rajinikanth’s Shankar directed 2.0 and Simbu aka STR’s Vandhaa Rajavaa Thaan Varuven, is aiming to have a theatrical release in 2020.
