Dhruv Vikram made his acting debut in 2019 with Adithya Varma, the Tamil remake of Telugu blockbuster Arjun Reddy. Chiyaan 60 will be his second movie. He has also signed a film with director Mari Selvaraj. The yet-to-be-announced project is being billed as a sports drama and will be bankrolled by filmmaker Pa Ranjith.
Vikram has a slew of movies in the pipeline, including director R Ajay Gnanamuthu’s Cobra. The shooting of the film, which is in its last leg, is underway in Russia.
Director Karthik is currently awaiting the release of Jagame Thandhiram, starring Dhanush in the lead role.
