His upcoming film's title was unveiled by Superstar Mahesh Babu - Maaveeran (Tamil) and Mahaveerudu (Telugu). The movie is directed by Rajkumar Periyasamy. Otherwise known as #SK21, the movie is touted as an action drama which will be slightly different for SK, who has done a slew of comedy entertainers. He is going to sport a stylish makeover for the film. To look the part, the actor is said to have made changes to his diet and workout sessions.
Reportedly, the movie will go on floors from this month end, and the pre-production works are happening in full swing. The film is scheduled to be shot across various locations in India, given the film's army backdrop.
