Vikram's looks in Shankar's forthcoming movie Ai have already drawn huge attention from media and public. His physical change, scanning, molding and prosthetics have stunned his fans. Now, yet another piece of news have emerged which could raise the expectations on the movie further. Well, Chiyaan has tonsured for the mega-budget project.
The actor has often experimented with his looks. From the fully-grown hairs in Anniyan to chiselled six-pack abs in Rajapattai, he has tried to give his best for his films. For the latest movie, he has shed oodles of weight for some portions and has developed abs for other parts of Ai. The revealed photos show him in lean avatars and he looks like a young college-going student.
The latest about him is that Vikram has gone bald for the forthcoming movie, which was revealed at the ongoing Indian Centenary function. He was seen sitting next to Illayathalapathy Vijay. The Anniyan star was chatting with the Thalaivaa actor and they had a good time at the function.
Chiyaan had earlier gone bald for his Blockbuster Sethu directed by Bala way back in 1999. Continue reading the story on the slideshow and also see the pictures of the actor...
Will Vikram Repeat The Magic?
Vikram's bald look in Sethu was widely appreciated and it had played a major role in the film's success. Now, his fans are hoping that he would repeat the magic again in Ai.
Talking about the movie, Shankar, in July, had claimed, "It's been a year since we started shooting for Ai and technically it is taking its own time for Vikram's physical change, scanning, molding and for preparing prosthetic make up materials, but I believe it's worth the wait."
The major part of the shooting of Ai has been completed. Three action sequences and a lot of scenes which are shot around China, Bangkok, Jodhpur, Kodaikanal, Pollachi and Chennai.
According to the director, the most exciting thing happened is, 'Weta Workshop' of Avatar, Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fame and run by Richard Taylor & Peter Jackson, is taking an important part in Ai in the special make up department. Like Stan Winston Studios played a major role in Endhiran, Weta is doing in the upcoming movie.
Vikram starrer Ai is a romantic thriller. He has romanced Amy Jackson in the upcoming Tamil flick.
Venu Ravichandran Produced Ai
Ai is produced by Venu Ravichandran. It has AR Rahman's music and PC Sreeram's cinematography.
It has to be noted that the hit team of Shankar, Vikram, AR Rahman and Aascar films had earlier worked together in Blockbuster Anniyan.
Suresh Gopi, Upen Patel, Santhanam, Ramkumar Ganesan, Satya Krishnan and others are part of the Ai cast.
Ai is made with a huge budget and it will hit the screens next summer.
