A project that has fans excited everywhere, 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan's Vikram was announced last year amidst much hype and will see the veteran superstar teaming up with director Lokesh Kanagaraj, who is fresh off the blockbuster success of his Master with 'Thalapathy' Vijay and 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi. A Raaj Kamal Films International venture, Vikram being produced by Kamal Haasan has now added the National Award-winning stunt choreographer duo Anbariv for the fight sequences in the film, with Lokesh Kanagaraj dropping the announcement on social media along with a picture of all of them posing together.

Anbaravi, who debuted as stunt choreographers in Karthi’s Madras, have gone on to work in films namely Kabali, 24, Maanagaram, Kaashmora, Sandakozhi 2, Kaithi, and subsequently won the National Award for their stunning fight sequences in K.G.F: Chapter 1. The duo, whose work will once again be seen in K. G. F: Chapter 2, are also a part of highly-anticipated films like Sivakarthikeyan's Doctor and Ayalaan, while also being announced sometime back to joining hands with Vijay for Sun Pictures' next mammoth venture, the tentatively titled Thalapathy 65.
Kamal Haasan's Vikram will be the third occasion Lokesh Kanagaraj is joining hands with Anbariv after his directorial debut Maanagaram and Kaithi starring Karthi. The upcoming film, which had an intriguing title reveal teaser released sometime back, left many fans excited, who have been singing praises for the visuals that were shown. Considering the Vikram title teaser was heavy on build-up to massive action, Anbariv's addition to the team will no doubt bolster the expectations for the film as it is yet to kick-off production, which has been delayed owing to the pandemic and the lockdown. Furthermore, an official statement is awaited on Vikram's shooting schedule as Kamal Haasan's other biggie, Indian 2, has been mired in legal trouble of late.
Apart from Kamal Haasan, Vikram will see Malayalam superstar Fahadh Faasil joining the cast, with latest reports suggesting that Vijay Sethupathi and Arjun Das too are in the fray for important roles. 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander is scoring the music, with Sarkar fame Girish Gangadharan replacing Lokesh Kanagaraj's frequent collaborator Sathyan Sooryan for the cinematography owing to schedule issues. Philomin Raj is taking care of the editing, followed by N Sathees Kumar for the art direction and Pallavi Singh for costume design.
