A film that has had fans everywhere excited right from the moment of its announcement last year, 'Ulaganayagan' Kamal Haasan's Vikram will see the iconic actor teaming up with director Lokesh Kanagraj, who is the current sensation in Tamil cinema. An ardent fan of Kamal himself, Lokesh has been mighty excited about the upcoming film touted to be an intense action thriller after three back-to-back successes namely his directorial debut Maanagaram in 2017, followed by the Karthi-starrer Kaithi in 2019 and the 'Thalapathy' Vijay box office blockbuster Master, which came out earlier this year. After the announcement of the National Award-winning stunt choreographer duo Anbariv coming on board for the action sequences in the film, Lokesh Kanagaraj took to social media on Friday to officially confirm that Girish Gangadharan will be handling the cinematography in Vikram, while also informing that cast updates will be coming in soon. 

Girish Gangadharan's name had been in the fray for a while now for Vikram after cinematographer Sathyan Sooryan, who previously collaborated on Lokesh Kanagaraj's Kaithi and Master opted out citing scheduling conflicts. Having made an impressive debut in Malayalam cinema in the 2013 film, Neelakasham Pachakadal Chuvanna Bhoomi, starring Dulquer Salmaan and Sunny Wayne, Girish soon became to go-to man and proved his skills and time and again in Kali, Angamaly Diaries, Solo, including Jallikattu. Just as his career was taking a big upswing in Malayalam, Girish made his Tamil cinema debut in 'Thalapathy' Vijay's 2018 action political drama blockbuster, Sarkar, under A. R. Murugadoss' direction. His addition to Vikram will no doubt be a big positive as the film being produced by Kamal Haasan's Raaj Kamal Films International is leaving no stone unturned in making the venture as big as possible and the latest announcement from Lokesh Kanagaraj will indeed add to the huge hype surrounding it. 

Kamal Haasan's Vikram has been riding on massive excitement considering the film already has top Malayalam actors like Fahadh Faasil and Narain as part of its cast. The Vikram title announcement teaser too had created a tremendous buzz, with the visuals and Kamal's rugged and uber cool stylish look continuing to be the talk of the town, with 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander also set to be yet another big USP for the film.
