Vikram will have to spend a good amount of time in the gym to have a uber cool avatar in Shankar's next film I. The director has told the actor to build his physique for his character in the upcoming multilingual film.
After completing the first schedule, Vikram will reportedly be taking a three-month break in order to build his body. He should have a strict and never-before fitness regime to get a beef up look. In the first half, his role demands him to be simple and lean personality. However, in the second phase, he will be seen flexing his muscles.
It is also said that Vikram, who is known for having varieties of looks in his films, will have many getups in this film too. In fact, the actor's different avatars will be a treat for his fans. Meanwhile, Shankar has gone to China in hunt of locations and he will be back soon.
I is expected to take off on July 15. Despite finalising his crew, Shankar is yet to finalise his female leads for the upcoming movie. After Samantha walked out of the film citing date issues, his men have tried to contact Amy Jackson, but the deal has not been struck.
The forthcoming film is a romantic-thriller, which has AR Rahman's music, PC Sriram's cinematography, also features Santhanam, Malayalam actor Suresh Gopi, Ramkumar (Nadigar Thilakam Sivaji Ganesan's eldest son) and others. It is produced by Aascar Ravichandran.
