'Chiyaan' Vikram and Nayantara will be teaming up for the first time in the upcoming Tamil project, Marma Manithan, which will be helmed by Anand Shankar of Arima Nambi fame.
"Yes, happy to have two greatest actors on board. Information on other artists, technicians and title to be unveiled soon. For the first time #Chiyaan (Vikram) #Nayanthara," Shankar posted on his Twitter page."
The film, which was supposed to go on floors earlier this year, will finally go to sets soon. After a couple of producers backed out of the project, Shibu Thameens finally took it up and will now fund this relatively high budget flick.
Interestingly, Kajal Aggarwal had been initially roped in to play the female lead, but with the change of its producer, the movie has witnessed a change of heroine too. Nayantara has reportedly allotted dates for the project.
Tipped to be an urban thriller, Vikram is likely to don khaki in the film, which will have Bindu Madhavi in an important role. The shooting is expected to get underway in Malaysia, three weeks from now.
