Sivakarthikeyan's project with Nelson Dilipkumar to go on floors by THIS month
Sivakarthikeyan considers the director to be his mentor who taught him what cinema was all about.
At present, Prince Sivakarthikeyan is one of the busiest men in Kollywood. He is juggling his time between the various acting commitments, while also taking time out for producing movies. He is also lending his voice for some songs and even penning the lyrics for some others. On the acting front, he is currently shuttling between the shoots of his upcoming movies, one with director Pandiraj and the other with PS Mithran. It is common knowledge that soon, Siva would begin work on his project with Vignesh Shivn. As was announced earlier, following this, Sivakarthikeyan would next be working with director Nelson Dilipkumar. We now have an exciting update about this project!
Our source close to the development team of Siva's movie with Nelson, states, "The pre-production work for our project is on in full swing. We are planning to begin shooting in September!" Reports also state that Sivakarthikeyan would have completed shooting for a significant portion of Vignesh Shivn's project. Recently, Nelson posted a casting call for his movie and this came in for some interesting responses. Anirudh first responded to the casting call, asking if he could try his hand at acting. This was followed by Vignesh Shivn jokingly asking if he could apply and then it was Sivakarthikeyan himself, who threw his hat into the ring. All these enquiries for acting chances were met with funny responses from the director Nelson himself.
Nelson Dilipkumar shot to fame with his very first movie - Kolamaavu Kokila - which had Nayanthara in the titular role and also saw Yogi Babu in a leading role. This movie came in for very positive response from the audiences and there were a lot of speculations as to who Nelson would direct next. Sivakarthikeyan and Nelson go back a long way to as early as Siva's anchoring days, as he considers the director to be his mentor who taught him what cinema was all about. Nelson was an employee of Vijay TV, where Sivakarthikeyan made his mark from in front of the camera. As a mark of their friendship, Sivakarthikeyan's character in the cameo appearance he made in his maiden production venture Kanaa, was called Nelson Dilipkumar. We just can't wait to see how this project will shape up.Read More
