After ‘Saamy’, Vikram is playing the role of a police officer in his forthcoming film, to be directed by Bhoopathy Pandian. The movie produced by Mohan Natrajan features Ileana opposite him.
Devi Sri Prasad, who is equally popular in Tamil and Telugu film industries, is scoring the music. “Vikram plays an investigative cop. The shoot of the film will start in Chennai later in the week,” sources say.
Plans are on to dub and release the film simultaneously in Telugu. This has made the producer and director to rope in ace Tollywood comedian Brahmanandam and Kota Srinivasa Rao to play pivotal roles.
“The story is about an honest and intelligent police officer, who wins the baddies by brainy and brawny ways. Boopathy Pandian is known for catering to the tastes of the masses and he is at it again with this Vikram starrer,” sources add.
