One film that is at the top of everyone's movie watch list is the upcoming 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan-starrer Vikram, which is currently in the post-production stages. Touted to be a raw and intense action thriller, the film directed by Lokesh Kanagaraj also stars 'Makkal Selvan' Vijay Sethupathi and leading Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil in major starring roles and features music by Anirudh Ravichander. Announced for a grand theatrical release on June 3, Vikram is set to feature high-octane action sequences, and National Award-winning stunt choreographer duo Anbariv have now shared their working experience in the film, while also describing the various factors that went into shooting the fight scenes in an exclusive interview to Galatta. 

Speaking about being roped in to be a part of Vikram, Anbariv revealed that they were initially apprehensive to come aboard the venture. They stated, "He's a legend. It would be most appropriate for a stunt director who has worked in international films to come and oversee his action sequences in the film. There will also be times when he will speak in English and we won't be able to understand him. He will also share many technical words, which we sometimes will not know. Kamal sir will always be ahead of us." 

Anbariv then added that Lokesh had given them an assurance that he had already informed Kamal sir that they would be doing the stunts in Vikram. They said, "On the first day of the shoot, we explained to him details about an action scene. He was extremely attentive when we described the sequence to him and appreciated us for what he had come up with. We were very happy with his feedback after which he also sang high praises about us to producer Mahendran." The duo further said, "Kamal sir had told Mahendran sir that we can use various properties for action scenes from the godown at the Raaj Kamal Films International office." When Anbariv expressed their surprise, Mahendran informed them, "Kamal sir usually doesn't shower praise on people easily. He analyzes them properly and it is wise to use an opportunity like this when it comes knocking at your door."

Jointly produced by Kamal Haasan and R. Mahendran under the Raaj Kamal Films International (RKFI) banner, Vikram's star cast also includes Narain, Chemban Vinod, Kalidas Jayaram, and Gayathrie in pivotal roles, with reports also stating that Bigg Boss Tamil season 4 sensation Shivani Narayanan, television actresses Maheswari Chanakyan, Myna Nandhini, and veteran actor Santhana Bharathi are also making appearances in the film.
