We had recently reported that actor Dhruv Vikram will be collaborating with director Mari Selvaraj for a film titled Bison. The film will be a sports drama based on kabaddi and also stars Anupama Parameswaran as the female lead. Recently, Mari Selvaraj opened up about the film and revealed some information about the progress of the project.

Mari Selvaraj on Bison

On his first collaboration with actor Dhruv Vikram, Mari Selvaraj said in a recent interview with a daily that Bison will be a sports drama that will revolve around kabaddi.

However, contrary to the reports that the film will be a biopic on the life of Manathi Gansan, Mari Selvaraj said that Bison will not be a biopic but a fictional tale. He also revealed that the team is currently shooting for a 60-day schedule of the film in Tirunelveli. Once it is wrapped up, Bison's shooting in Chennai will start.

Bison will have music scored by Nivas K Prasanna in his first collaboration with Mari Selvaraj. It is known that Santhosh Narayanan is a regular collaborator of the director, and speculations arose that the falling out between Santhosh and Pa Ranjith has caused this. However, Mari Selvaraj cleared the air and said that he wanted a fresh voice for the film and hence, went with Nivas. Bison will be shot by cinematographer Ezhil Arasu and editor Sakthikumar.

More about Bison

Bison is bankrolled by Applause Entertainment and Pa Ranjith's Neelam Productions. This marks the second collaboration of Ranjith and Mari Selvaraj after Pariyerum Perumal. Apart from Dhruv and Anupama, the film also stars Lal, Pasupathy, Kalaiyarasan, Rajisha Vijayan, Hari Krishnan, Azhagam Perumal and Aruvi Madhan among others.

Other technical crew includes art director Kumar Gangappan, action coordinated by Dhilip Subbarayan, and Aegan Ekambaram designing the costumes. The film has gone on floors Monday. The makers are yet to announce the release date of Bison.
