Monday, January 8, 2018 • Telugu Comments

'Chiyaan' Vikram is on a signing spree. While the National award-winning actor is gearing up for the release of his 'Sketch' (Tamil) hitting the screens on January 12 for the Pongal festival weekend, he is also on the verge of completing Gautam Menon's 'Dhruva Natchathiram' and 'Saamy Square', directed by Hari. 

Latest, it has been confirmed that the talented actor has signed a mega-budget project in Hindi. 

Yes, it has been officially announced that Vikram will play the lead role in the epic fiction 'Mahavir Karna', a Hindi film to be directed by RS Vimal, who has previously directed the critically acclaimed Malayalam super hit 'Ennu Ninte Moideen'. 

'Mahavir Karna' will be bankrolled by the United Film Kingdom New York on a whopping budget of Rs. 300 crores. The makers have promised that the film will have the creme de la creme of Indian film technicians and artists and we can expect a casting coup of sorts in the film. 

The film, which will ostensibly be based on the legend of Karna, one of the most interesting characters of the Indian epic Mahabharata, will go on floors in October this year and it has been scheduled to hit the screens in December 2019.
