After playing the role of a mentally challenged person convincingly and realistically and winning the hearts of his fans, movie-goers and critics, actor ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram is back to one of his favourite genre of films: action. Vikram’s next offering would be Rajapattai which is directed by Suseendhiran of Vennila Kabadikuzhu fame.
Youthful, bubbly and sexy-looking Deeksha Seth, already a name to reckon with in Tollywood, would be debuting as heroine in Tamil films with Rajapattai opposite Vikram. Vikram plays a gym instructor in the film which is said to possess all the ingredients of a commercial potboiler. Vikram himself had said during the release of Deivathirumagal that he personally loved doing more and more action-based films.
Produced by PVP Cinemas at a huge budget, the film’s distribution and release rights were secured by Gemini Lab, which also is producing the Vijay-Jiiva-Srikanth starrer Nanban directed by Shankar. As Nanban was scheduled for a Pongal (January 14) release, Gemini was under the impression that it would screen Nanan in all the theatres where it would be releasing Vikram’s Rajapattai this month.
All of a sudden, Gemini pulled out of distributing and releasing the film a few days back which put a question mark over the theatrical release of Rajapattai. It now turns out PVP Cinemas, the producers, would be releasing the film all over the State and elsewhere on their own.
