Vidyut Jammwal Returns to Tamil Cinema in Sivakarthikeyan and AR Murugadoss’s New Project

Vidyut Jammwal, the renowned action star, is set to make a significant return to Tamil cinema. The actor, who previously gained acclaim for his roles in AR Murugadoss’s “Thuppakki” alongside Vijay, as well as in Ajith’s “Billa II” and Suriya’s “Anjaan”, is reuniting with director AR Murugadoss for an ambitious new project featuring Sivakarthikeyan in the lead role.

The announcement of Vidyut’s inclusion in the film, tentatively titled “SK x ARM”, was made through a social media update by the film’s producers. The Twitter post read, “Bringing back the villain who terrorized one and all 🔥 Welcoming the menacing @VidyutJammwal on board for #SKxARM ❤️‍🔥▶️ https://t.co/57n8gxjemA. Shoot in progress. @SriLakshmiMovie @ARMurugadoss @Siva_Kartikeyan @anirudhofficial @SudeepElamon @rukminitweets @KevinKumarrrr… pic.twitter.com/OWGQYfu03z.”

Produced under the banner of Sri Lakshmi Movies, “SK x ARM” marks the first collaboration between Sivakarthikeyan and Murugadoss as actor and director, respectively. Although Murugadoss had previously contributed as a writer and co-producer for Sivakarthikeyan’s 2014 sports comedy “Maan Karate,” this project will be their first full-fledged collaboration. This film is generating significant buzz among fans and industry experts alike, as it brings together some of Tamil cinema’s most dynamic talents.

Adding to the excitement, the movie will feature Rukmini Vasanth, known for her work in the critically acclaimed Kannada film “Sapta Saagaradaache Ello.” Rukmini is set to make her Tamil debut with Vijay Sethupathi’s “ACE,” and “SK x ARM” will mark yet another significant milestone in her burgeoning career as the film’s female lead.
