Sivakarthikeyan has been enjoying the success of his recent release, Namma Veetu Pillai. He is currently busy with Hero, directed by PS Mithran who made a big splash last year with Vishal’s Irumbu Thirai.

The film is speculated to be a superhero film. Hero will have two heroines, Kalyani Priyadarshan and Ivana, as the female leads while Abhay Deol will be seen playing the baddie. Arjun, Vivek and Robo Shankar have been roped in to play pivotal roles. RD Raja and KJR Studios are bankrolling this venture. The film has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja while George C Williams and Ruben are in charge of the film’s cinematography and editing respectively. The film will hit the screens on December 20.
Sivakarthikeyan’s recent release Namma Veetu Pillai was a rural comedy directed by Pandiraj and bankrolled by Sun Pictures. The film, an action comedy that revolved around a brother-sister relationship, opened to positive reviews from critics and audiences alike giving a much-needed break for the actor following his back-to-back debacle at the box-office for his last releases – Vellaikaran, Seema Raja and Mr Local.
Sivakarthikeyan has pinned high hopes on his upcoming projects. He has a yet-untitled project with Vignesh Shivn and if everything goes as planned, this film will start rolling later this year.
The film has Rashmika Mandanna in talks for the project which will feature two heroines. To be produced by Lyca Productions, the film will mark the first-time collaboration of Sivakarthikeyan and Vignesh Shivn. The actor also has a science fiction film with Ravi Kumar. This film also stars Rakul Preet Singh as an astronomer.
