Despite his proven acting prowess, actor ‘Chiyaan’ Vikram takes quite a long time to first listen to the script of a film and to decide as to whether or not to take up the offer to act in the film. For some reasons, though, he appears to be unable to decide about the ‘success’ of the script while listening to it.
It is, therefore, not surprising that he turned down both ‘Ghajini’ and ‘Kaakka Kaakka’, two super-hit films of Suriya, when they were offered to him first. As it turned out later, the two films have changed Suriya’s career as a whole and put him on the road to superstardom. This also gave film-makers the confidence that Suriya could handle any kind of script.
Gautham is said to have met Vikram recently and narrated a script to him. Vikram had just finished shooting for Vijay’s ‘Deivathirumagan’ and is gearing up for Suseendhiran’s ‘Raajapattai’ when Gautham narrated him the script. Vikram immediately loved the script and has reportedly agreed to star in the film. Menon might start his film with Vikram after completing the Hindi version of ‘Vinnai Thaandi Varuvaaya’.
Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports say that Vikram might star in ‘Karikalan’ to be directed by Kannan of ‘Kandein Kaadhalai’ fame and that too opposite the sizzling Katrina Kaif of Bollywood!
