Vikram-Ajay Gnanamuthu film to begin from Oct 4

Shooting of Vikram’s upcoming flick, to be directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu of Imaikaa Nodigal fame is all set to commence from October 4.

Vikram will sport multiple looks in the film and sources say that the number of looks for him in the film will fetch him a new record in the world cinema.

Referred to as #Vikram58, the film, an action thriller, will be made in three languages — Tamil, Telugu and Hindi. The movie will have musical score by A R Rahman. Priya Bhavani Shankar is said to be the heroine.

The film will be produced by Lalith’s 7 Screen Studios and Viacom 18. Arun K Viswa, creative producer of the film, said, “We are big fans of ARR sir’s music. Ajay, too, is a huge fan of Rahman. When the discussion regarding music came about, all of us unanimously said Rahman’s name.

But we were hesitant to approach him as he’s become very choosy about his projects. Also, he’s always collaborated with big names and we are a young team. We gave it a try anyway and got an opportunity to meet him.”

He added: “He was very warm and down-to-earth. He really liked the script and took a week’s time to get back. Eventually, he okayed the project.”

Ajay Gnanamuthu, who had helmed Demonte Colony and Imaikaa Nodigal, wrote, “Super Duper excited to have the musical genius @arrahman sir on board. Dreams do come true #ChiyaanVikram58 #ChiyaanVikram @Lalit_SevenScr @AndhareAjit @iamarunviswa @proyuvraaj @LokeshJey @sooriaruna.”

The project, which marks the third time union of Vikram and Rahman after Raavanan and I, was officially announced in May.
