Vikram said that he is joining hands with Mani Ratnam again, in a press meet held recently to promote his upcoming film ‘Kadaram Kondan’. Vikram also added that he will be joining the shooting next year. He had earlier worked with the Mani Ratnam in Raavanan, which had Abhishek Bachchan and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan in the leads in Hindi.
He is the second actor after Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, who has confirmed to be part of Mani Ratnam’s next movie. If the speculations are to be believed, Vikram will be doing the role of Aditya Karikaalan in the film, which is based on Tamil historical fiction Ponniyin Selvan written by Kalki. It was also rumored that Amitabh Bachchan plays the role of Sundara Chozhar, Sathyaraj as Periya Pazhuvettaraiyar, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as Nandhini, Jayam Ravi as Arulmozhi Varman, Keerthy Suresh as Kunthavai Naachiyaar and Karthi as Vanthiya Devan will the cast in Mani Ratnam’s creation.
The story thread of Ponniyin Selvan spans years and more than 50 characters, we wonder how the crew is going to portray the novel into visuals in the film. If it is done it would be a treat to the eyes. Kadaram Kondan, which is scheduled for release later this month, is produced by Kamal Haasan’s Raaj Kamal Films International. Vikram also revealed that the next schedule of his historical film, Mahavir Karna will happen only after Mani Ratnam’s film. Lyca productions are said to produce the film but other than this two actors no one has confirmed their presence is this most hyped historical flick.Source:Entertainment
