Last seen in Vikram’s 10 Endrathukulla (2015), actor Abhimanyu Singh will play the prime antagonist in Karthi-starrer Dheeran Adhigaaram Ondru, which will be helmed by Vinoth, who earlier made Sathuranga Vettai (2014). Tipped to be an action-thriller, it’s for the second time in his career Karthi will be seen donning khaki. A source informs CE, “Abhimanyu was the first choice of the director and he was signed in the first meeting itself. He will join the sets from the first schedule in Feb, and will be playing a very intense role.”
Also starring Rakul Preet Singh as Karthi’s love interest, the project will be bankrolled by Dream Warrior Pictures. Karthi essays a character called Dheeran, and he will be playing a straight-forward police officer who will be required to go undercover at times. “Scenes between Karthi and Abhimanyu will be the film’s biggest highlight. Karthi might muscle up for the role as it would require him to do some action.” Ghibran will compose the music and he’s believed to have already started working on the album. The film will be shot across various locations in India and the team might travel abroad to shoot one song.
