Actor, singer, lyricist and producer Sivakarthikeyan is now shooting for his next film with director Rajesh of Siva Manasula Sakthi and Boss Engira Baskaran fame. This project, which is tentatively being called as SK 13 is produced by Studio Green. The musical sensation duo of Hiphop Tamizha (Adhi and Jeeva) is responsible for the musical score of this family entertainer. Earlier, this film was rumoured to be titled as Jithu Jilladi, named after the superhit Thalapathy Vijay song from Theri. However, the makers denied the news and labeled it to be false. Kollywood insiders suggest that initially the team did consider Jithu Jilladi as one of the title options, but later moved away from it for reasons unknown.
Now, we have a new update on the title of this film and if our sources are to be believed, SK 13 might be titled as Mr. Local. Sivakarthikeyan has played a local youth in his earlier films like Maan Karate & Velaikkaran and now it looks like SK13 will also travel on the same lines. Similarly, Rajesh's films have also had 'thara local' characters as his protagonists. Jiiva's character in Siva Manasula Sakthi and G.V. Prakash's character in Kadavul Irukkan Kumaaru are definite proof of this point. To know if Mr. Local is the real title of this project, we would have to wait for a few more days, probably a week or two, as the first look poster of the film is expected to be revealed in early February.

Also, we are told that popular YouTuber and 'Eruma Saani' fame Harija is playing Sivakarthikeyan's younger sister in this project. Harija rose to fame with her cute expressions through her Youtube videos, thereby registering a strong place in the hearts of youngsters. Now, this news must be a sweet surprise for the young sensation's fans.
Veteran actress Radikaa Sarathkumar plays Sivakarthikeyan's mother, while Lady Superstar Nayanthara is paired as his love interest.
Sivakarthikeyan is also simultaneously shooting for his 14th film, directed by Ravikumar of Indru Netru Naalai fame. This movie is said to be a science fiction thriller, dealing with the concept of aliens. Post these two films, Sivakarthikeyan has signed up for a new project with director P.S. Mithran, who made an impressive debut with Vishal's Irumbu Thirai.
