After completing his portions for Mr Local, Sivakarthikeyan moved onto the sets of Hero, his next film which is directed by PS Mithran of Irumbu Thirai fame. Touted to be an intense thriller that will also throw light on many current affairs, the film has Kalyani Priyadarshan playing the heroine while Arjun will be seen as the baddie. Interestingly, we have now heard that Sivakarthikeyan plays the role of a bike racer in the film.
According to a source from the unit, “For the first time in his career, Sivakarthikeyan will be seen playing a bike racer here. The role requires him to go through a slight physical changeover, and he will also be seen performing a lot of live stunts. In the first schedule, the team has been shooting for a lot of such scenes at undisclosed locations.” Arjun, who marks his second immediate combination with PS Mithran after Irumbu Thirai, will be joining the sets soon to shoot for his portions.
