Apart from Fahadh Faasil and Kalidas Jayaram, Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi is also playing another pivotal role in Vikram. Even though this movie is not a sequel to the 1986 movie of the same name, the makers had used a remixed version of the theme song from the 1986 film in the teaser. 

As Kamal Haasan is joining hands with power-packed performers like Fahadh Faasil, Vijay Sethupathi, and Kalidas Jayaram, audiences are expecting something big from Vikram. Moreover, the film also marks the union of Kamal Haasan and hitmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj. The director's previous movies Maanagaram, Kaithi, and Master were huge hits at the box office, and the same is expected from Vikram too. 

Anirudh Ravichander is composing the music of Vikram. The editing is being carried out by Philomin Raj. The film is produced by Raaj Kamal Films International.
