Vikram's next big budget movie 'Mahavir Karna' by Mollywood director RS Vimal is about to kick-start next month. 

The movie which will be made in Tamil and Hindi will commence in Hyderabad for the first 6 months, meanwhile, almost 60% to 70% of the movie will be dependant on VFX.

Mahavir Karna will be a magnum opus with a 300 crore budget, where Chiyaan Vikram will take up the role of the historic figure 'Karna'. Previously, this epic character was played by Nadigar Thilagam Sivaji Ganesan in the movie 'Karnan'.

Mahabaratha is a Hindu epic which portrays the Kurushektra war with the Pandavas as the main characters. And now the movie will re-tell the story from Karnan's point of view.

For now, the other casts and crews of the movie are yet to be revealed.

Previously, Prithiviraj was roped in to play the role Karnan in Malayalam with a smaller budget. However, that project was shelved as the moviemakers planned to make the movie in a bigger scale. Thus, why Vikram was offered the role instead.
