Much before the release of Mani Ratnam"s Raavanan, the actor started filming his untitled film with Selvaraghavan. Produced by Ramesh of Kanagarathna Movies, the film was reported to be a psycho-thriller. The first schedule was completely shot at exotic locales of Ladakh and suddenly got shelved due to unknown reasons.
Later, Vikram signed Yaavarum Nalam fame Vikram Kumar for a sci-fi thriller 24, which was also dropped at the last moment. Moreover, his other project Vedi with director Boopathy Pandian was supposed to take off in Salem this week and has been cancelled.
Finally, the actor has now signed director al Vijay of Madrasapattinam for his next movie. It seems that the duo wanted Bollywood actress Vidya Balan to perform the female lead role. However, the actress has refused the offer saying that she is busy with Hindi films.
It looks like Vikram is completely perplexed over picking the best projects. Three of his projects were dropped within three months time. He snubbed Selvaraghavan, Vikram Kumar and recently Boopathy Pandian.
