Speculations are abuzz that Shanvi Srivastava will play a pivotal role in Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram. However, we are not sure if it's a full-fledged one or a cameo appearance. Multiple reports suggest that the Kannada actor will appear in the flashback portions, featuring both Kamal Haasan and Vijay Sethupathi. A report published in the Times of India says Shanvi Srivastava's scenes will come for about ten minutes in the film. However, we await an official word.
Directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj, Vikram also features Fahadh Faasil, Narain, Kalidas Jayaram, Arjun Das, Shivani Narayanan, Chemban Vinod Jose, Hareesh Peradi and others, in important roles.
It is no secret that Lokesh Kanagaraj is a fanboy of Kamal Haasan. The poster design of Vikram suggests loads of action elements. Against a red background, the character of Kamal Haasan's outline is made up of guns. That is the route Lokesh took in his Karthi-starrer, Kaithi, too.
Vikram has music by Anirudh Ravichander. It was earlier reported that the film will have parts in which Kamal Haasan will appear as a 30-year-old for the flashback story. Interestingly, the makers had spent over Rs 10 crore on the technology, predominantly used in Hollywood films, to make Haasan look younger.
Vikram's shooting began in 2021 and was wrapped up in March, this year. Currently, the film is in the post-production stage. Bankrolled by Kamal Haasan’s Raaj Kamal Films International, in association with R Mahendran, Vikram will release on June 3.
Vikram has Cinematography by Girish Gangadharan, Anbariv as the stunt choreographers, and Lokesh’s frequent collaborator Philomin Raj as the editor.
Further, OTTplay had told you, team Vikram was likely to gear up for a grand audio launch, at the Jawaharlal Nehru indoor stadium, in Chennai, on May 14. Recently, the makers had also announced the launch of a metaverse experience with NFTs and a theatrical trailer at the Cannes Film Festival.
