Aditi Shankar joins Sivakarthikeyan-Madonne Ashwin's Maaveeran
Aditi, the daughter of veteran filmmaker Shankar, is all set to make her debut in Tamil cinema with the Karthi-starrer Viruman
We had earlier reported that Sivakarthikeyan and National Award-winning filmmaker Madonne Ashwin were joining hands for a film titled Maaveeran. Right from the time of its announcement, there have been multiple rumours about the casting of the film with names like Vijay Sethupathi and Goundamani doing the rounds. However, nothing concrete came off it so far.
Now, the first official casting announcement of Maaveeran was released by the makers, Shanti Talkies, and Aditi Shankar is set to star alongside Sivakarthikeyan in the film. Aditi, the daughter of veteran filmmaker Shankar, is all set to make her debut in Tamil cinema with the Karthi-starrer Viruman, which will hit the screens on August 12. Even before the release of her debut film, Aditi has signed her sophomore opposite the Don actor, who has an interesting lineup of films, including Prince, Rajkumar Periasamy's yet-to-be-titled film with Sai Pallavi, and Ayalaan.
Maaveeran, which has been titled Mahaveerudu in Telugu, will release in Tamil and Telugu, and marks the second film of Madonne Ashwin after Mandela.
The Mandela crew of Vidhu Ayyanna, Philomin Raj and Bharath Shankar have been roped in as Maaveeran's cinematographer, editor, and music director, respectively.
