Noted cinematographer Vijay Milton made his directorial debut with Arun Vijay - Bharath starrer Azhagai Irukkirai Bayamai Irukkirathu. However, he got his breakthrough as a director with the 2014 film, Goli Soda which surprised everyone with its strong content and intense filmmaking. Later, he made films like 10 Endrathukulla, Kadugu, and Goli Soda 2. Now, his next directorial project has been announced and this is indeed going to be a huge leap in his career. Vijay Milton would be directing Kannada superstar Shiva Rajkumar’s (Shivanna) next film and the announcement regarding the film was made this morning (July 12) by Suriya.

Today, being Shiva Rajkumar’s 58th birthday, the announcement was made and it has made the fans super excited. Another interesting aspect to note is that this film will also feature actor Dhananjaya as the other lead and it will be a multistarrer. Shiva Rajkumar and Dhananjaya have acted together already in the 2018 superhit film, Tagaru and the blockbuster combo is all set to repeat the magic once again. Dhananjaya played the role of an antagonist in Tagaru, but we are yet to know about his role in this new project.

Vijay Milton has penned the story and screenplay for the film and will also crank the camera, apart from wielding the megaphone. Interestingly, this film will mark Vijay Milton’s directorial debut in Kannada cinema and he couldn’t have asked for a much bigger debut. Produced by Krishna Sarthak under the banner of Krishna Creations in association with Vijay Milton's Rough Note Productions, this untitled film will have music by J Anoop Seelin.

It has also been announced that this movie will hit the screens next year, in 2021. The shooting is expected to take off when the lockdown gets uplifted. One does not know what genre the film is going to be, but we can be sure that the film will be nothing short of a celebration. Details regarding the rest of the cast and crew are touted to be announced in the coming months. Post the completion of this film, Vijay Milton will be teaming up with Vijay Antony for an action based film in Tamil.
