Sivakarthikeyan’s next SK 16 is all set to be directed by Pandiraj. The project is set to go on floors by mid 2019. The film, which will be bankrolled by Sun Pictures, is expected to hit screens for Pongal next year. Rumours have been doing the rounds since a long time that Aishwarya Rajesh is going to be seen as the leading lady in the film. Our sources said, "Yes, Aishwarya is in the talks to play the female lead in Sivakarthikeyan's 16th film directed by Pandiraj but nothing has been finalized as of yet.”
When we asked the actress about the same, she neither confirmed the news nor denied it. She said, “You will get to know through the production house and I am in no position to comment on it.” Could that mean that we will see her in the project? It is to be noted that Aishwarya’s last film Kanaa was produced by none other than Sivakarthikeyan! SK 16 will mark the 3rd collaboration between Pandiraj and the actor. The previous ones were Marina, Kedi Billa Killadi Ranga. Details regarding the rest of the cast and crew are still awaited. So, it looks like we will have to wait for a little bit longer to see whether Aishwarya and Sivakarthikeyan will actually be seen together or not.
Aishwarya has been getting rave reviews for all her latest outings namely Vada Chennai and Kanaa. Meanwhile, Sivakarthikeyan has about five films in his kitty. He has also kick started the shoot of his next with director PS Mithran of Irumbu Thirai fame. The title of the film has been revealed to be Hero and it is being bankrolled by KJR Studios.
