Tamil cinema is venturing into new territories daringly with each passing day and the makers of the upcoming science fiction film starring Sivakarthikeyan too will be looking create some new ground. Being produced under RD Raja’s 24AM Studios banner, this yet-to-be-titled film will be directed by Indru Netru Naalai director R. Ravikumar with music by Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahmam.

A big sign the film has already hit the high note was after Sun TV purchased the film’s satellite rights even before production had begun rolling.

That said, there has been talk on who would be cast as the female lead opposite Sivakarthikeyan for a while now. And, reports now state, actor Rakul Preet Singh is being eyed by the makers owing to her strong performances in last year’s Spyder and Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru. An official statement is meanwhile awaited. 

It must be noted Rakul Preet is also part of Selvaraghavan’s Suriya 36 with Suriya and Sai Pallavi.

If she does go on to land the coveted role in Sivakrthikeyan’s film, it will be a fine addition to her already growing list of high profile projects she has lined up for the year, which also includes reuniting with Karthi for another film with newcomer Rajath.
