Actor Jayam Ravi, who is basking in the success of his recently released Thani Oruvan and Miruthan, has said his upcoming project with director AL Vijay will elevate their statuses to National level.
While Thani Oruvan was watched by some of the biggies like Salman Khan, Miruthan too, received positive reviews for attempting a movie based on zombies in Tamil.
With his status already reaching new heights, the Romeo Juliet actor has claimed that Vijay and himself will go on to get National recognition once their yet untitled film hits the big screen.
"We're joining together for a massive action commercial entertainer. The project will elevate our status to national level. We will commence work on this project as soon as both of us are relieved of our current commitments," the 35-year-old actor said in a statement.
Ravi has always been keen to work with the Deiva Thirumagal director and that it was their respective schedules that kept them apart.
"I've always wanted to work with Vijay, because his presentation will suit my style of acting. While we've been planning to collaborate for a long time, we weren't available for each other due to our respective commitments," he has said. Rest of the cast and crew are yet to be finalized.
Interestingly, few months ago, there were speculations that claimed Jayam Ravi will be joining hands with Vijay for a historical action-adventure, which will narrate the story of Lemuria continent (Kumari Kandam), which is also known as the lost island.
However, the reports were rubbished as mere rumours from sources close to Jayam Ravi.
The actor, who is currently shooting for Bogan, will also be seen in Gautham Menon's upcoming project. He is also expected to star in a sci-fi thriller, to be directed by Sakthi Soundararajan.
