Kamal Haasan met Rajinikanth over the weekend, ahead of the release of Vikram. Director Lokesh took to Twitter to share the picture and share his excitement over the meeting. Lokesh thanked both of them for the picture and said that their friendship is inspiring.

Vikram, which will also be released in Telugu, Malayalam and Hindi, features Suriya in a powerful cameo. As part of the promotional interviews, Lokesh said that he wasn’t sure if Suriya would accept the offer at the last minute. Surprisingly, he gladly accepted the offer and completed shooting his portion in two days, almost shooting round the clock.

Vikram, which is scheduled for release on Friday, was supposed to be wrapped up last November. The shoot had to be postponed after Kamal Haasan tested positive for coronavirus. Eventually, the makers decided to shoot the entire schedule indoors in a specially built set for the sake of Kamal’s health.

Rumours suggest Lokesh will soon direct Rajinikanth in Kamal Haasan’s production. The project has been in the news for over two years now.
