Actor Vikram is a bundle of energy. Though in the wrong side of the forties, the actor is as fit as a fiddle and is game for any kind of roles, unlike most heroes. The actor is now eagerly awaiting the release of net film ‘Deiva thirumagal’ which stars Anushka and Amala Paul and has been directed by Vijay of ‘Madarasapattinam’ fame.
Not the one to sit idle for long, Vikram has already started work on his next project titled ‘Rajapattai’. The film is directed by Suseendhiran who has had a successful beginning as director with hat-trick of hits in ‘Vennila Kabadikuzhu’, ‘Naan Mahaan Alla’ and ‘Azhagarsamiyin Kudhirai’. Except for ‘Naan…’ which starred Karthi, Suseendhiran has always relied on his script rather than on the actors/actresses to deliver a hit.
‘Rajapattai’ would also mark the debut of Tollywood’s sexy-looking Deeksha Seth as heroine in Tamil films. Fair-complexioned Deeksha Seth is quite happy to be debuting opposite Vikram. Incidentally, she is also playing Simbu’s heroine in his ‘Vettai Mannan’ and as such would be debuting with either of the two films.
The film is produced by the teenaged duo of Prateesh and Santosh, sons of popular producer Ramesh who had earlier produced the Vijay-starrer ‘Pokkiri’. Ramesh, though, is cooling his heels in Andhra Pradesh police’s custody as he has been arrested in connection with a case of ‘extortion’ and ‘fraud’. The Unit informs that despite Ramesh’s arrest, the shooting of ‘Rajapattai’ is proceeding normally.
The shooting is going on in Chennai in specially erected sets, confirms an Unit source. If everything goes well, the film is likely to be wrapped up by the first week of September so as to be released on the eve of Deepavali!
