Cheeyan Vikram is one of the rare artists known for his involvement and dedication in any role that he performs. He always ably performs the role offered to him, giving his hundred percent on screen.
He is currently busy in doing the ground work for his upcoming project Kandasamy, in which he is reported to be doing five different roles. According to sources from the Kandasamy unit, the actor will also appear in the role of an African tribal. To shoot this segment, the crew will fly to South Africa soon, and shoot in the dense forests, which are the habitat of the tribals.
For this particular shoot, the director has already made a trip to the African jungles and studied the tribes living there very diligently, and later incorporated his findings in Vikram's looks.
It is noteworthy that in Dasavatharam, veteran actor Kamal is playing 10 different roles, with one being that of an African tribal. Recently, Kamal too had visited and shot a few scenes in the protected jungle area of South Africa with the government's permission. Now Cheeyan is following in the footsteps of his mentor!
