Actress Srinidhi Shetty, who shot to fame with ‘KGF’, is said to be the leading lady of ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram’s upcoming film, which is to be directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu. Earlier, Priya Bhavani Shankar was the heroine of the flick.
“However, Priya was too busy and was unable to allot the dates required for the project. Hence, the makers have now opted for Srinidhi Shetty. She is so happy to share the screen space with an actor par excellence like Vikram,” sources said.
Oscar-Grammy winner AR Rahman is composing the music for the magnum opus, which is to be bankrolled by 7Screen Studios and Viacom 18. If sources are to be believed, Vikram will sport more than 23 looks in this flick, which will be loaded with adrenaline-pumping action.
It must be noted that Rahman has reduced composing music for Tamil films and only picking the right projects. It is said he was thoroughly impressed by the script of Vikram-Ajay film which was why he accepted to score music for it.
According to Arun K Viswa, creative producer of the film, it will be shot in and around Chennai, Mumbai, parts of Kerala and in Europe, too.
