The project is slated to go on the floors in August and the makers plan to release it in April 2020.
The film aims to capture a pan-Indian market, catering to not just Vikram's huge Tamil fan base, but also to the Hindi and Telugu audience. Produced on a massive scale in association with Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, the project will include several big-ticket names in its cast and crew.
A first-look poster was unveiled in May, and while most details about the project are being kept under wraps, the buzz is that Vikram plays a photographer in the film.
The actor currently awaits the release of the Tamil action thriller "Kadaram Kondan" and he also has a project with Mani Ratnam lined up.
In a recent media interaction, Vikram confirmed signing Ratnam's next, a film adaptation of the Tamil epic novel, "Ponniyin Selvan".
