Who will play the lead in director Gokul’s ‘corona Kumar’ was a secret, until the makers revealed the name last week. And according to the announcements, Silambarasan will be playing the titular role in the film. Now, as per the latest reports, Silambarasan will begin shooting for ‘Corona Kumar’ in December as the actor is currently working for ‘Vedhu Thanidhathu Kaadu’ with Gautham Menon, and the film is progressing steadily.
It is also reported that the director Gokul has asked Silambarasan about shooting for ‘Corona Kumar’ simultaneously as he wanted to begin the shoot at the earliest. However, Silambarasan has denied the idea as he will be portraying two different looks in both, and he wishes to begin the work for ‘Corona Kumar’ once he inches towards the finish line for ‘Vendhu Thanidhathu Kaadu’. Hence, Silambarasan will start the work for the film in ‘December’, and the team has planned to shoot for the film in two lengthy schedules. The other cast and crew for ‘Corona Kumar’ will be revealed before the take-off.
Silambarasan will be next seen in the political thriller ‘Maanaadu’ which is directed by Venkat Prabhu, and the film is all set to release for this Diwali to clash with Rajinikanth’s ‘Annaatthe’. An interesting trailer was released recently, and the film has decent expectations to become a super hit drama.
