Actor Vikram and director Ajay Gnanamuthu are coming together for an action thriller. The film had been tentatively titled as Chiyaan Vikram 58. The project’s announcement was made on Monday by the director via a post on Twitter.

“With all your love and blessings, kick starting my next with our beloved Chiyaan Vikram sir. It’s like a dream come true for me to direct one of the best artists we have and to be working with this fabulous producer Lalit and team,” Gnanamuthu wrote. The project, scheduled to go on the floors from August, is being produced by Seven Scene Studio in association with Viacom 18 Studios. The makers have plans to release the film in April 2020.

The first-look poster was unveiled on Monday and it is a mashup of Vikram’s multiple avatars in the film. According to the industry buzz, Vikram plays a photographer in the film.

“This film will be a pan-Indian project catering to the Tamil, Hindi and Telugu audience. It will be produced on a massive scale in association with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures. The cast and technicians will have big names of all industries collaborating for this film,” read a statement from the makers.

Gnanamuthu, who made his directorial debut with Tamil horror-thriller Demonte Colony a few years ago, rose to fame with Tamil thriller Imaikka Nodigal last year. The film featured Anurag Kashyap in the role of the antagonist.

Talking about his new project, he told Times of India: “The only thing I can divulge right now is that Vikram’s role will be a challenging one. Of course, he has always taken up challenging roles, but I think this one will be better than all of those.”
