While the makers had previously announced that Vani Bhojan will be part of this project, now, they have also roped in Simran for a key role. Simran and Vikram will be sharing screen space for the third time with this film (after Pithamagan and the yet-to-be-released Dhuruva Natchathiram). The project will also mark her second collaboration with Karthik, who had cast her as Rajinikanth’s love interest in Petta. The actress confirmed in a tweet, “An exceptional opportunity to team up with @karthiksubbaraj again! Super glad to join the dynamic father-son duo of #ChiyaanVikram and #DhruvVikram on #Chiyaan60.”

Meanwhile Anirudh Ravichander was earlier announced as the composer of the high-profile #Chiyaan60, now, the makers have brought in Santhosh Narayanan to compose the music. Santhosh has scored the music for all of Karthik’s films except Petta, for which Anirudh was the composer.
The film went on floors today, and announcing the same, Karthik tweeted, “Yes… It’s A Santosh Narayanan Musical!! Welcome to the Gang @Music_Santhosh Thanks @anirudhofficial for your understanding & Support. (sic)”

The shooting of the film will be happening in Chennai, and we hear Vikram will be shooting for it in a single stretch for the next 30 days.
Simran has currently started shooting for Andhagan, the Tamil remake of Andhadhun, which is expected to mark the comeback of Prashanth. That film has also gone on floors today.
