Fresh from the success of Anegan, KV Anand started working on his next project right after. AGS Entertainment, who was happy with the box office performance of Anegan, signed KV Anand for another action entertainer. However, the lead hero has been not finalized yet.
Initially there were speculations that Sivakarthikeyan will be roped in but KV Anand quickly denied the reports as rumors. Later, Arya was said to be the frontrunner to play the lead role.
Now, if sources are to be believed, KV Anand has reportedly finalized Vishal since last few films of Arya have been duds at the box office. Vishal will start this project, if everything is finalized, after he completes Kathakali with director Pandiraj.
