According to reports, Shankar, who is directing Vikram in forthcoming movie I, has asked the actor to shed weight. So, he will have long breaks between his each shooting schedules. As he will have enough time, the Anniyan star has given green signal for Bala's film.
Vikram is likely to start the filming soon and he is expected to wrap up the first schedule before taking a break for Shankar's I. The second schedule will kick-start only after the completion of Shankar's film. The first phase of the filming will reportedly start in Rameswaram.
Bala and Vikram had earlier worked in Sethu and Pithamagan. Both the films had won National Awards and it took both the director-actor to new levels.
