Vikram is playing a 35-year-old fisherman in 'David', a Tamil-Hindi bilingual, which is being directed by Bejoy Nambiar of 'Shaitan' fame.
Sharing the screen space with him is Jiiva, who plays a musician. Interestingly, the name of the characters played by both Vikram and Jiiva is David.
"The film will present two different stories to the audience. One is about a fisherman and the other is about a musician. How the two stories meet towards the climax is the crux of 'David'," says Bejoy.
Besides Vikram and Jiiva, the film has Tabu, Nassar, Isha Sharvani and Lara Dutta in pivotal roles. Based on the response to the Tamil and Hindi versions, the movie will be dubbed and released in Telugu.
