Kamal haasan announced his new film Vikram with director Lokesh Kanagraj last year on the sets of Bigg Boss Tamil Season 4. The film's teaser went viral on social media and went on to become a popular catchphrase among fans. It has been several months since Vikram was announced, but it hasn't gone on floors yet. Since Kamal Haasan has wrapped up his election duty, he is all set to begin shooting for Vikram from August. Earlier, we had reported that Fahadh Faasil and Vijay Sethupathi are expected to play negative roles in the film. Now, it looks like there is a new addition to the film's cast.
Narain, who was last seen in Lokesh's Kaithi, has confirmed that he plays an important role in Vikram. In an interview with The Times of India, the actor said that he called Lokesh to congratulate him on the release of Vikram's teaser. That was when Lokesh said that he has an interesting role for Narain in Vikram. He said, "I was shooting for a Tamil film in Dubai and once I got back to India, I had a script narration. My character in the film is an important one. Acting alongside Kamal sir is a dream come true for me. The reason I got into acting is because of him. To work with him and that, too, under Lokesh’s directorial, is big. Lokesh is a huge fan himself and he knew I was one, too.”
