Dhruv, the young and dashing son of Chiyaan Vikram, celebrated his birthday recently. Dhruv made his debut with Aditya Varma, ghost directed by his dad Vikram.
Dhruv and Vikram are also all set to team up for an action thriller to be directed by Karthik Subbaraj. For those who don’t know, Vikram invested a huge amount of money after he wasn’t impressed with Bala’s version of Aditya Varma and shot a new version with the help of the director Gireesaya.
