The shooting schedule of television anchor-turned-actor Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming film after Velaikkaran, which commenced in right earnest a few days back, is said to be progressing at a brisk pace.
To be directed by Ponram of Varuthapadatha Valibar Sangam and Rajini Murugan fame, the untitled venture brings Ponram and Sivakarthikeyan for the third time together. The duo hopes to make it a ‘hat-trick’ of success as their earlier two films had been super-duper hit films.
For the first time, Samantha has been paired up opposite Sivakarthikeyan in the film. The actress, who has kept up her word and continues to star in films post her October wedding to long-time boyfriend and Tollywood star Naga Chaitanya, shot for a song sequence in the film and looked very cute clad in a half-saree.
The first-look posters of the film would be released on 17th February next year to coincide with Sivarkarthikeyan’s 33rd birthday. Samantha underwent special ‘Silambattam’ training to star in some ‘stunt sequences’ in the film which has Soori, Napoleon, Simran, Lal, ‘Mottai’ Rajendran, Yogi Babu and Manobala essaying prominent roles. D. Imman scores the film’s music.
Sivakarthikeyan’s friend R.D. Raja is producing the film under his banner ’24 AM Studios’. More than 50% of the film’s shoot has been wrapped up as the shoot is taking place in and around Kutralam and TEnkasi.
