The news that Vijay will be joining hands with director Chimbu Deven for his 58th movie which is touted to be an action-fantasy entertainer is out for a while now. The latest news about the movie is that the film might be titled Maarisan!
Interestingly, Chimbu Deven and Dhanush were supposed to work together in an action-fantasy and the film was then tiltled as Maarisan. But due to some unknown reasons, the film was shelved. It is still unknown if Vijay is going to work on the same script that was earlier narrated to Dhanush, but it looks like the director has retained the original title.
According to the script, the protagonist, during his adventurous journey will encounter a lot of magical places, several animals, birds, supernatural powers etc. Since it is a fantasy entertainer, the movie will have a lot of special effects and animatronics to generate animals like lion, tiger and huge snakes.
The film which boasts of an impressive star cast which includes Hansika, Shruti Haasan, yesteryear Bollywood diva Sridevi and Sandalwood star Sudeep is said to be a trendsetter. Also it is being said that the movie will be filmed in some serene, never before seen locations across India including Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Maharashtra and Punjab.
It is also worth mentioning that Maarisan is a character seen in the Hindu epic Ramayana who plays an important role in helping Ravana to kidnap Sita by disguising himself as the golden deer to divert Ram's attention.
