Vikram suffered an injury while filming his next movie, Thangalaan, a few days after Ponniyin Selvan 2 was promoted. Since then, he has taken a hiatus.
Actor Vikram recently returned to the sets of his forthcoming Tamil film Thangalaan and has been keeping busy with the rehearsals. Vikram recently saw the release of his film Ponniyin Selvan 2. He sustained a rib injury in the process and will be sidelined for some time. Suryanarayanan, the publicist for Vikram, tweeted the news.
He tweeted, “Thank you for all the love and appreciation Aditha Karikalan aka Chiyaan Vikram has received and for the astounding response to PS2 from all over the world. Chiyaan sustained an injury during rehearsals resulting in a broken rib due to which he will not be able to join his Thangalaan unit for a short while. He thanks everyone for your love and promises to be back on his feet and rocking at the earliest.”
His fans have been wishing for his speedy recovery and have commented, “Hope nothing serious. Wishing Vikram recovers soon and returns to action (sic).”
Vikram, who would be featured as the leader of a small tribe, will be shown in Pa. Ranjith’s first project with Vikram. On the occasion of Vikram’s birthday last month, Ranjith posted a new poster and a making-of video on Twitter. “Happy birthday to my #Thangalaan, @chiyaan sir. Presenting you a slice of flesh, a grand making visual video of Thangalaan as our humble tribute to Chiyaan.”
The film provides a magnificent glimpse into Thangalaan’s universe. More importantly, after the first few shots, it concentrates on Vikram’s character. Vikram is being filmed as he prepares for the role.
Because of this role in Thangalaan, Vikram had a significant bodily change. To look the part, he shed his muscles in addition to losing weight. He shaved the front of his head, leaving him with a man bun and a half-shaved head.
