Vikram Kumar"s debut directorial Alai starring Simbu and Trisha in lead roles didn"t yield him favorable results. Nearly after 5 year of long sabbatical gap, director Vikram Kumar earned his reputation with the grand success of his bilingual movie Yaavarum Nalam (Hindi version titled 13B). He got himself leaping with best laurels as Hollywood"s leading production company Weinstein Pictures acquired international remake rights of this supernatural thriller.
Sooner, the filmmaker was signed by producer Mohan Natarajan to wield megaphone for Vikram"s 24, which was a sci-fi thriller. On the spur of moment, the project was dropped due to creative difference of opinions between them.
Now, the director has been signed to direct Vijay"s 53rd film, which is reportedly produced by A.M. Rathnam of Sri Surya Movies. The filmmaker is busy now working on script along with his associates and will complete them by next couple of months.
If everything goes well between Vikram and Vijay, the film will go on floors by end of December as Vijay is busy now shooting for Kaavalan and will shortly commence his other film Velayudham.
