Veera Sivaji, Vikram Prabhu’s next film with director Ganesh Vinayak, will have Shamili as the lead heroine. Shamili is the sister in law of Ajith Kumar and one of the prodigious finds of ace film-maker Mani Ratnam.
She made heads turn by playing the titular role in Mani Ratnam’s Anjali which received wide acclaim from everyone. Veera Sivaji also has model-turned-actress Swetha Ashok making her debut in the industry as one of the female leads.
The first schedule is planned in Pondicherry next month after Vikram Prabhu completes Wagah with director GNR Kumaravelan.
