Vikram, Gautham Menon off to Slovenia

Key members of the cast and crew of Slovenia, a film starring Vikram in the lead and directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, will soon be leaving for Slovenia.

Sources say that Vikram is currently busy with the last leg of shooting of his commercial potboiler Sketch and he is expected to complete the entire shoot by next week.

After that, he will be leaving to Slovenia by the third week of June to kick start the new schedule of Dhruva Natchathiram, which is tipped to be an action thriller.

Dhruva Natchathiram is produced, written and directed by Gautham Menon. Featuring Vikram in the lead role, the film began production in January 2017.

Following the release of Yennai Arindhaal (2015), Gautham Menon revived Dhruva Natchathiram and revealed he was working on the script by March 2015. Vikram was subsequently signed for the lead role.

The film began production with only Vikram and Anu Emmanuel as confirmed members of the cast in January 2017. In early February 2017, Anu Emmanuel opted out of the film citing scheduling issues following Vikram’s decision to alter his schedule, so that he could simultaneously shoot for a film directed by Vijay Chander.

Gautham Menon signed on actress Ritu Varma to replace her, after being impressed by Varma’s performance in the Telugu film Pelli Choopulu. The team also signed R Parthiepan to act in the film.
