Actor-producer Sivakarthikeyan's next film, the tentatively titled SK 20, under young and promising filmmaker Anudeep KV’s direction, was officially announced on Saturday as a New Year's treat for fans. The upcoming Tamil-Telugu bilingual has been in the news for a while now as Anudeep's comedy film, Jathi Ratnalu, turned out to be a success and his collaboration with Sivakarthikeyan created instant excitement among fans. A motion poster for SK 20 was released yesterday that included composer S. Thaman's music, with Sivakarthikeyan also expressing his excitement about their collaboration for the first time. The hit music director has now responded back saying he too is looking forward to the actor's skills as a lyricist in SK 20, thereby hinting he could be penning a song in the new film. Check out below their interaction: 

Sivakarthikeyan has proven himself to be a credible lyricist after his songs namely 'Kalyana Vayasu' in Nayanthara's Kolamavu Kokila, 'Gaandha Kannazhagi' in Namma Veettu Pillai, and 'Idhu Enna Maayamo' in Dhruv Vikram's Adithya Varma received stellar feedback from fans. The actor also wrote the lyrics for 'Chellamma' and 'So Baby' in his box office blockbuster Doctor last year and has penned a song in Suriya's upcoming film, Etharkkum Thunindhavan. Whether Sivakarthikeyan turns songwriter once again for his SK 20 remains to be seen and it will indeed be interesting. 

Being produced by Narayan Das K Narang and Puskur Ram Mohan Rao's Sree Venkateswara Cinemas LLP and Suresh Daggubati's Suresh Productions banners in association with Arun Viswa's Shanthi Talkies, SK 20 will incidentally mark Sivakarthikeyan's acting debut in Telugu cinema. Early reports say the film will be a rom-com about a Tamil tourist guide from Pondicherry falling in love with a British woman during her visit to the city.
