Sivakarthikeyan, whose ‘Seema Raja’ did only average performance in the box-office while his recent release ‘Mr Local’ bombed, is pinning big hopes on ‘Hero’ directed by Mithran of ‘Irumbu Thirai’ fame.
The film is tipped to be an action thriller and its title look has been unveiled. According to the makers, ‘Hero’ will hit the screens on December 20.
Arjun and Bollywood actor Abhay Deol are said to be playing villains in the movie, which has Kalyani Priyadarshan as the heroine. Music is by Yuvan Shankar Raja, while cinematography is by George C Williams.
Meanwhile, there is a buzz that Sivakarthikeyan’s rural movie with director Pandiraj will hit the screens even before ‘Hero’, since the film is fast taking shape. The yet untitled movie is being bankrolled by Sun Pictures.
Other projects in the pipeline for Sivakarthikeyan include a sci-fi film with director Ravikumar and flicks with Vignesh Shivan and Nelson.
