Vignesh Shivan, who has delivered a super-duper hit film in Naanum Rowdydhaan, actually debuted as director with the Simbu-Varalaxmi starrer Poda Podi in 2012 but has only now come of ‘age’ as a director. Rumoured to be in love with Nayantara, he is planning a biggie as his third directorial venture.
Shivan’s untitled film is to star Sivakarthikeyan, Nayantara and Trisha in the lead, it is said. Nayantara and Trisha, who made their debut in Kollywood almost at the same period a decade back, were once archrivals but have, of late, become close pals and have formed a mutual admiration club.
Vignesh has decided to take advantage of their camaraderie by casting them as the twin heroines in his next directorial venture.
A formal announcement about the film is expected to be made soon. As and when it is made, it would be a huge boost to the fledgling career as an actor in respect of Sivakarthikeyan, who gets to romance two frontline actresses, who have been in the industry for more than a decade and still retain audience and fans’ interest in them, in a single film.
