"Karthik will direct Siddharth in a mega budget project, which will be simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu. The rest of the cast is yet to be finalised," said a statement from the production house.
Kathiresan, known for producing Tamil films such as Polladhavan and National Award winning film Aadukalam, will produce the film under his home banner Five Star Movies. "I'm not in a position to discuss the story of the film, but all I can say at the moment is that it will be a blend of action and drama," Karthik told IANS.
He added that the film will go on floors soon. Meanwhile, Siddharth is busy wrapping up upcoming Tamil comedy Theeya Velai Seiyyanum Kumaru.
Karthik's debut film Pizza is currently being remade in Hindi. The remake rights have been bought by filmmaker Bejoy Nambiar.
