Vikram has a casting coup of sorts. It stars four powerhouse performers; Kamal Haasan, Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, and most importantly, Suriya, in a cameo. In an interview, the dialogue writer Rathna Kumar has spoken about the Singam actor's brief appearance in this Lokesh Kanagaraj directorial, which created quite a buzz in the industry. "I can't wait to see how Suriya fans will react in theatres. I'm sure the crowd will go berserk. They will scream, whistle and hoot. His cameo will be the most-talked-about."

Rathna Kumar added Vikram would be an experience in itself. "The audience would be confused about whom to watch on the big screen. Suriya has done something wild. In fact, nobody would have imagined him this way. He has scored high with his magnetic presence," he noted.

Lokesh Kanagaraj thanked Suriya for having come on board, during the Vikram audio launch. And, that was the first time he confirmed the actor’s involvement officially in the project.

Speaking about a sequel to Vikram, Kamal Haasan, in a recent press meet, stated that if it does happen, it would be directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj himself. "I'm confirming this on his behalf," he noted, with a smile.

Kamal Haasan also spoke about how Vikram was a 'different' pan-Indian film. “The concept of pan-Indian cinema isn't new. What Satyajit Ray made then was purely pan-Indian content. We've made a quality film, which is something on par with the world cinema," he said.

Barring Kamal Haasan's character name, there won't be any resemblance to the 1986-film (directed by Rajashekar), stated Lokesh Kanagaraj. "Vikram is totally a new film and has got nothing to do with the old one," he clarified in an interview with Film Companion.

Vikram is bankrolled by Raaj Kamal Films International, in association with R Mahendran. Also featuring Gayathrie Shankar, Narain, Kalidas Jayaram, Shivani Narayan, Hareesh Peradi and Chemban Vinod among others, in key roles, the film has music by Anirudh Ravichander.

If everything goes well, Vikram is expected to release on June 3. So, aarambikalaangala!?
