Actor Vikram is currently working on director Mani Ratnam’s dream project ‘Ponniyin Selvan’. The shooting of the film has to be stalled due to lockdown-led film shoot cancellations.
The 54-year old actor is also working on a supernatural thriller film ‘Cobra’ directed by R. Ajay Gnanamuthu. The film makers wrapped up the shooting of the film halfway in Russia in March due to the ongoing coronavirus outbreak. Cobra is also bankrolled by Seven Screen Studio.
Karthik Subbaraj’s recent project ‘Jagame Thandhiram’ with Dhanush, was slated for release this May but has been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
