Ajith was earlier said to be playing the protagonist in the upcoming film of director H Vinoth of Sathuranga Vettai and Theeran Adhigaram Ondru fame.
However now, it has emerged that Vikram would play the lead role in the next flick of the talented young filmmaker, who was earlier a journalist.
According to sources, Vinoth recently pitched his script to Chiyaan Vikram who was impressed with the narration of the talented filmmaker.
It is further said that if all goes well, Vikram will start working on Vinoth’s film from early 2019.
Meanwhile, it was earlier announced Ajith’s Viswasam, directed by Siva, would hit the screens for Deepavali. However recently, reports claim the movie would be released for Pongal 2019.
The film was previously announced as a Diwali release but due to the delay in the commencement of the shoot, the producers have shifted the theatrical release plans to Pongal 2019, the reports said.
The much-awaited film went on the floors in Hyderabad in May. Nayanthara plays the romantic interest of Ajith and Imman is composing the music for the film which also has Thambi Ramaiah, Yogi Babu, Vivek, Bose Venkat and Ramesh Tilak in pivotal characters.
