After superstar Rajinikanth who essayed the hero and the villain in Shankar’s Enthiran: The Robot and Suirya who did so in his latest film 24, it appears that Vikram is all set to repeat the feat of the two actors in his upcoming film Iru Mugan.
Directed by Anand Shankar of Arima Nambi fame, Iru Mugan stars Vikram, Nayantara and Nithya Menen in the lead. It was already reported that Vikram plays dual roles in the film. It now turns out that one of those roles is that of the antagonist in the film.
The teaser of the film was released recently on Vikram’s 50th birthday. Vikram’s dual roles and the fact that it is ‘hottie’ Nayantara’s first film opposite Vikram had already upped the audiences’ interest in the film whose shoot has been proceeding non-stop. It is said that Nayantara is also performing some action sequences in the film as her role is almost parallel to that of the hero.
Vikram has never essayed the villain’s role so far and his fans are eagerly awaiting this film which would reveal a ‘hitherto’ unknown side of his.
