Vishnuvardhan has pulled of a casting coup of sorts. His upcoming film is a complete action thriller produced by AM Rathnam. For this Ajith release, Vishnu has already actors Arya, Nayranthara and Taapsee Pannu finalized.
News is that Arvind Swamy and Prithviraj are the fresh new additions before the shoots go on floor. Done with his Billa 2 shoots, Ajith plans to move on to the Vishnuvardhan project by May end. Billa 2 is currently in it’s post production stage. Actor Arvind Swamy, who makes his comeback for Mani Ratnam’s Kadal, hasn’t denied the possibility of starring in the Vishnuvardhan saying , “I am currently doing only Mani’s film. I am in talks on a few projects and can’t comment on anything specific.” He is yet to sign on the dotted line as he tells us, “I am talking to a few people but I have not signed any new projects.” The actor had to return back home from the Kadal sets following an arm injury as he spent the break with his family.
Arvind has recovered fully and even enjoyed a match of cricket with his kids recently. Actor Prithviraj on the other hand has his Urumi heading for a world-wide release on May 25th before making plans for the Ajith-Vishnuvardhan project. Ajith’s current Billa 2 (expected for June 8th), has composer Yuvan Shankar Raja carrying out re-recording in Mumbai with the post production work alongside. He also accompanies Vishnu and Ajith for the new project that goes on floors by May end.An official announcement on hunks Arvind Swamy and Prithviraj joining the unit, is awaited soon.
