Vikram is well known in kollywood for his versatile acting capabilities. Now he is going to speak Spanish. Not in a Tamil movie but in a Spanish movie. This Spanish film produced by Thanu and acted by Vikram is to be directed by Susi Ganesan. According to the crew, the earlier plan was to shoot some of the scenes for ‘Kandasamy’ in Kenya. The situation in Kenya was not favourable to them. So they started looking for another location and getting good inputs they choose Mexico and correspondence with the country’s film and government personalities started.
The crew of Kandasamy which included Producer Kalipuli S Dhanu, director Susi Ganesan, hero Vikram, cameraman Ekambaram and art director Thotta Tharani flew to Mexico and stayed there for 10 days to decide on the location. They met various film authorities of the country and were taken in a helicopter for nearly four days to view some of the exotic locations. Then they met the Indian Ambassador Rinzing Wangali who took them to Durango, where they had a chance to meet the Governor C.P.Ismael Alfredor Hernandez Drras. They then screened the trailer of ‘Kandasamy’ during dinner. The standing ovation they gave after watching the film was a great honour according to producer Kalipuli S Dhanu. Vikram is also said to have impressed them by speaking a few words in Spanish.
Then the actor was offered a role in the Spanish language movie to be directed by Susi Ganesan and produced by Kalipuli S Dhanu. Producer Thanu has been made the Indian Ambassador for future co-productions for all the other film production between India and Mexico.
