Ace director Shankar's daughter Aditi Shankar will be making her debut in Tamil cinema as an actor with the upcoming Karthi starrer Viruman which is slated for release on August 12 and the film is expected to take a good opening at the box office. Even before the release of her very first flick, Aditi Shankar has signed her second Tamil film and this is also an exciting biggie. Yes! Aditi Shankar has been officially announced as the female lead of Sivakarthikeyan's new film, Maaveeran and the update has set the fans in excitement. The official update was shared by the makers through a short video that was released this morning (August 3) and it looks like a refreshing pairing is on cards.

If the buzz on social media is to be believed, the shooting of the film begins today and the team will kickstart the first schedule with Sivakarthikeyan and other actors. Maaveeran is directed by Madonne Ashwin who made an impactful debut in Kollywood with the Yogi Babu starrer Mandela. Interestingly, Madonne Ashwin bagged two National Film Awards - Best Debut Director and Best Dialogues for his outstanding work in the film and all eyes are now on Maaveeran. The film's announcement video looked intriguing, piquing our curiosity and the film is expected to showcase Sivakarthikeyan in a completely different dimension.

Maaveeran is touted to be an action comedy and the fans have pinned high hopes on the movie. Maaveeran has music composed by Bharath Sankar while Vidhu Ayyana and Philomin Raj have been assigned to head the cinematography and editing departments respectively. The film will be produced by Arun Viswa under the banner of Shanti Talkies. Sivakarthikeyan, meanwhile is gearing up for the release of his next movie, Prince which is slated to hit the screens for the festive occasion of Diwali. Prince is a Tamil - Telugu bilingual and it is directed by the talented KV Anudeep of Jathi Ratnalu fame.
