Vikram plays the role of a mentally retarded adult with the maturity of a five-year-old boy in Deiva Thirumagan. The actor's wife Shailaja, who is a practising psychiatrist, helped him during the shoots by giving necessary tips to mould the actor's retarded character in the film.
Director AL Vijay has confirmed that Vikram's wife attended a few schedules to help them. However, the audio of Deiva Thirumagan was released recently, which has got a huge response from the audience. The movie also features Anushka Shetty and Amala Paul in the leads.
