While everyone were wondering about maverick director Shankar's next project after completing superstar Rajinikanth's sci-fi thriller 2.O, speculations about him joining hands with actors Vikram and Vijay surfaced, stirring up excitement among fans.
Since Shankar had to replace Vikram with Akshay Kumar in 2.O, after Lyca's suggestion of roping in a 'bigger star', the Enthiran director's decision to join hands with Vikram for his next seemed probable.
Now, a report has it that Shankar may indeed helm Vikram's next as the duo were seen discussing a script in the recent past.
It is said that Shankar narrated the script to Vikram, for which the actor has given his nod. If the project materializes, Kollywood may witness Shankar joining hands with the 10 Endrathukulla actor for the third time after Anniyan and I.
It is to be seen if Shankar has plans of roping in Ilayathalapathy Vijay to make the flick a multistarrer as speculated earlier.
Vikram is currently shooting for director Anand Shankar's Iru Mugan that has Nayantara and Nithya Menon as its female lead. Iru Mugan will have Vikram playing dual role for the first time in his acting career.
