It's now official - 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan and Lokesh Kanagaraj confirmed the casting of leading Tamil actor-producer Suriya in their upcoming film, Vikram, which is scheduled for a grand theatrical release on June 3. The big revelation came at the Vikram audio launch that took place at the Jawaharlal Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai on Sunday, May 15, which witnessed a huge audience turnout and also included several leading names from Tamil cinema gracing the gala event. During his speech, Lokesh Kanagaraj went on to officially announce the casting of Suriya in Vikram stating that the team initially wanted to keep it a suspense for audiences, but decided to reveal it after the news got leaked. Likewise, Kamal Haasan went on to express his gratitude to the cast and crew of Vikram for their contributions to the film, including fans for their constant support, while also giving Suriya a special mention for coming on board the venture at the last moment.
The Vikram audio launch has turned out to be a super success and is the talk of the town and all sights have now shifted towards the film's release in the next few days ahead. There is already a strong talk about Suriya's appearance in the Vikram trailer, which was released yesterday and is still generating a lot of curiosity and debate on social media. Not much is known about the film at this point apart from the fact that Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil, are engaged in a showdown. Kamal Haasan is set to appear once again on the big screen after a nearly four-year gap when he was last seen in Vishwaroopam II (2018), the sequel to the 2013-blockbuster Vishwaroopam, and the excitement for Vikram as expected is sky-high.
Produced under Kamal Haasan and Mahendran's Raaj Kamal Films International banner, Vikram is billed to be a high-octane action-thriller and features songs and a background score composed by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander, who has been in sensational form over the past few years. The casting of Kamal Haasan, Vijay Sethupathi, and Fahadh Faasil, including the addition of Suriya in a cameo has only skyrocketed the buzz for Vikram.
