Vikram, who is awaiting the release of Ajay Gnanamuthu's Cobra, has announced that he will work with the director again on his next project. On Thursday night, the actor announced during a special Twitter Spaces session. Vikram answered questions from the media and fans during the session, which was attended by the film's cast and crew.
"It's a unique story, and I'm very excited about it," the actor said when announcing the new film. Other details about the project are currently unknown.
Also, featuring cricketer Irfan Pathan, Malayalam actor Roshan Mathew, Miya George, Sarjano Khalid, Padmapriya Janakiraman, Kaniha, Robo Shankar, Mirnalini Ravi, Meenakshi Govindarajan and KS Ravikumar among others, the long-awaited Cobra has the KGF-fame Srinidhi Shetty playing the female lead.
With music by AR Rahman, the action-thriller, bankrolled by Seven Screen Studios, will release in theatres on August 31, in Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. The trailer of Cobra is expected to drop soon.
As an actor, Vikram is known for being emotionally invested in his roles, constantly challenging himself as a performer, and frequently pushing himself physically. He has previously stated that he prefers to work on films where he can add that extra something to make it unique. "It's not for the sake of impressing anyone; it's just for me. I want to look/be different from the real me in each of my films, and I want my performance to be different from the last one."
Vikram believes in featuring in films that have a universal appeal. "Language is no longer a stumbling block," he said, in an interview, citing Prabhas, as an example. “Any film that he does will be an all-India production. We're making more pan-Indian films. Everyone noticed Arjun Reddy. Everyone noticed Premam. If you are doing movies with universal appeal, you don't have to worry about language,” he added.
Meanwhile, Vikram has Mani Ratnam’s magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan-1, which is scheduled to release in theatres on September 30, in the pipeline, besides the long-delayed Dhruva Natchathiram, and an untitled one with Pa Ranjith.
