Sivakarthikeyan’s next Tamil film has been officially announced and the fans are super excited about this new project. As widely speculated by the media, Sivakarthikeyan’s next film will be directed by a debutant named Cibi Chakaravarthi, a former associate of director Atlee who worked in movies like Theri and Mersal. Titled as Don, this film will be bankrolled by Lyca Productions in association with Sivakarthikeyan’s SK Productions. The young and happening sensation, Anirudh Ravichander has been roped in to score music for the film. The makers made the announcement of the film through a special promo video that sets a fun vibe.

The promo video suggests that the film is set in a college and Sivakarthikeyan is expected to play a student. Interestingly, this is the first time we are going to see SK as a college student and we are sure to see a new dimension of the actor. We know Sivakarthikeyan is a solid entertainer who is known for his fun-filled entertainers and Don seems to be the latest addition. The promo video gives us a feel of how the movie is going to be. It is indeed exciting to see Sivakarthikeyan teaming up with a newcomer after quite a few years. The last time SK collaborated with a debut director was in Remo which was directed by Bakkiyaraj Kannan who was also an associate of Atlee.

The shooting of Don is expected to begin in February. Director Cibi is definitely a fortunate man to have got a solid team in the form of Sivakarthikeyan, Anirudh and Lyca Productions for his first film and he will surely be looking forward to making an impressive debut. It is said that Don is an extended feature version of one of Cibi’s pilot films that was called ‘Bittu’, but an official word on that is awaited.

Sivakarthikeyan had recently wrapped up the shooting of his ambitious project, Ayalaan, directed by Ravikumar. Ayalaan is a sci-fi thriller that has an interesting alien angle and the film has music scored by AR Rahman. Ayalaan is said to have extensive CG work and it is expected to take quite some time for those works to be completed.

Sivakarthikeyan’s next release would be Doctor which is directed by Nelson of Kolamaavu Kokila fame. Produced by SK Productions in association with KJR Studios, Doctor has music scored by Anirudh Ravichander and features Priyanka Arul Mohan as the female lead. This action based comedy entertainer is expected to release in theatres during the summer of this year. For now, check out the official announcement of Sivakarthikeyan’s Don here:
