Chiyaan Vikram is currently shooting for his untitled next with director Karthik Subbaraj. The shooting of the film began last week and director Karthik Subbaraj has been regularly sharing updates for the fans. Ace actress Simran plays the female lead in this film and she is expected to be paired opposite Chiyaan Vikram. It was earlier announced that actors Vani Bhojan and Bobby Simha would be acting in the film and the updates made the fans look forward to the project. The makers have now made a new announcement revealing the addition of one more member to the star cast of Chiyaan 60. The young and promising Sananth who acted in Superstar Rajinikanth's Petta has been signed on board to play an important role in the film.

After making his debut in the silver screen with Arulnithi's Demonte Colony, Sananth got his first breakthrough with the black comedy-drama, Jil Jung Juk that had Siddharth in the lead role. Chiyaan 60 will mark Sananth's third collaboration with director Karthik Subbaraj after Mercury and Petta. Interestingly, Karthik Subbaraj has retained three actors from the team of Petta - Simran, Bobby Simha and Sananth and we may expect more actors to join the team. Chiyaan 60 is touted to an intense gangster - action drama that will have strong content to take the film forward. The film is produced by Lalit Kumar under the banner of 7 Screen Studios.

Santhosh Narayanan will be composing music, while Shreyaas Krishna will be handling the cinematography. Initially, Anirudh Ravichander was supposed to score the tunes for the film, but he was later replaced by Santhosh Narayanan due to reasons unknown. Vani Bhojan, who has now become one of the most loved heroines among the youth audience, is rumoured to play the love interest of Dhruv Vikram. The young star, Dhruv made his debut as an actor through Adithya Varma in which his performance received positive reviews. For the first-ever time, he would be sharing screen space with his father, Chiyaan Vikram and the fans are excited to witness the real-life father-son combination on the big screen.

Meanwhile, Karthik Subbaraj's Jagame Thandhiram, starring Dhanush, is ready for release.
