Director Karthik Subbaraj announced on Twitter on Wednesday that his upcoming film starring Chiyaan Vikram and his son Dhruv Vikram has started shooting. The director also announced that the latest person to join this film was music director Santhosh Narayanan.
Earlier, music composer Anirudh Ravichander was brought on board for the film’s music, but has now been replaced by Narayanan. In his tweet, Subbaraj thanked Ravichander for his understanding and support.
Narayanan has previously worked with Subbaraj in Pizza, Jigarthanda, Iraivi, and the upcoming Jagame Thandhiram.
The film is temporarily titled Chiyaan 60 and is being produced by Lalit Kumar of Seven Screen Studio. Announced in June 2020, the film’s first look poster showed a man’s hand handing over a gun to a child.
While not much has been announced about the cast and crew of Chiyaan 60, Simran announced on Twitter that she was a part of this project. Sharing some pictures, she wrote that she was “super glad to join the dynamic father-son duo”.

It is also being said that Vani Bhojan will be seen playing the other female lead. Reported to be a gangster drama, Chiyaan 60 is expected to release later this year or early next year.
This film will also mark the first time on-screen collaboration of the real-life father-son duo, Chiyaan Vikram and Dhruv Vikram.
Dhruv Vikram was earlier seen in his debut film Adithya Varma (2019). The film, which was a remake of the Telugu film Arjun Reddy, didn’t do very well at the box office. The actor also has a Tamil film in the pipeline with filmmaker Mari Selvaraj.
Chiyaan was last seen in Kadaram Kondan. He also has Ajay Gnanamuthu’s Cobra and he is also working on RS Vimal’s Mahavir Karna and Mani Rathnam’s Ponniyin Selvan.
