Chiyaan Vikram would be seen next in Vijay Milton’s ‘10 Endrathukulla’, a racy action thriller involving the road trip of two people and the unique problems they face during the journey. Produced by AR Murugadoss and Fox Star Studios, the film features Samantha Ruth Prabhu as the female lead, accompanying Vikram in the adrenalin-pumping ride. Jackie Shroff, Pasupathy and Abhimanyu Singh would be seen as the antagonists while Telugu actress Charmi would be seen in a special appearance in a song.
The teaser of ’10 Endrathukulla’ was launched today, the 13th of August in Chennai. Vijay Milton and both the lead actors, Vikram and Samantha, were present at the event.
Vikram who was sporting the ‘Thevar Magan’ moustache, revealed that he wanted to do an stylish and spine-chilling action film for a long time, and his wish had come true with ’10 Endrathukulla’. Hinting at the possibility of a double role in the film, he expressed unshakable confidence in the film-making skills of Vijay Milton. “The film would show me in a different atlight, something that I have not done before. The film has a well-written female lead, it would be an important film for Samantha too”, he added.
Samantha while speaking at the event told that the film was taxing both physically and emotionally, but would make her proud. “I don’t play a glam-doll. It would be a performance- oriented role. I am grateful to Vijay Milton for the trust he placed in me, and I believe I have met his expectations”, she said.
The director Vijay Milton, who had also written and shot the film, said he wanted to do a film like “Need for Speed”, after the success of Goli Soda. “I wouldn’t call it a typical road movie, as the travel starts only at the half-way point. But the screenplay would be racy, engaging and realistic at the same time. The film has been shot across almost every part of India – Coimbatore, Hyderabad, Ladakh, Pune, Jaipur, Sikkim and many major North Indian cities. Charmme will be seen in a nine-minute song, which is shot as a play. We have taken the help of Hollywood stunt directors for conceiving the chase sequences. We wanted to take the audience into the chase, and not show it from the outside as usual. We have used innovative camera techniques for achieving the desired effect. I am confident that the film would be fresh for the Tamil audience”, he concluded.
The film, which has music composed by D Imman, is scheduled for an October release
