Vikram K Kumar is one of the well-known filmmakers who has created a niche for himself in both Tamil and Telugu film industries. In 1998, he directed his breakthrough non-feature film, Silent Scream, for which he won the National Film Award For Best Instructional Film. He made his directorial debut in Telugu cinema with Ishtam, and then directed Alai with Simbu and Trisha in the lead which bombed at the box office. His big break in films came through the Hindi-Tamil bilingual horror film 13B which featured Madhavan in the lead. After that his journey has been mostly in Telugu cinema apart from his sole Tamil film 24 with Suriya. Even his last film Gang Leader performed well at the box office.  
During an exclusive interview with Galatta, Vikram K Kumar revealed some details about his next film with Naga Chaitanya, it was earlier speculated that the film will have horror element but Vikram not only denied that but also gave us a few insight on how the film would turn out: “No it is not a horror film, I am doing a film with Naga Chaitanaya and we should go on the floors once all this end (corona lockdown), the scripting is almost done and the pre-production works are happening right now. But it’s not a horror film, that’s for sure. It will be self-discovery kind of a film, it has a character driven narrative, it’s about a person who explores his inner side but it will be very entertaining, fun, there is romance in it, there is action, all mainstream elements are there.”
