Sivakarthikeyan, one of the young actors in Tamil cinema has given various hits and blockbusters in films and now Atlee reveals that he had predicted after the release of the director’s first film Raja Rani that he would work with big stars like Thalapathy Vijay and Shah Rukh Khan.

Talking to Gobinath, Atlee said “If you ever meet Siva, you can ask him. He once told me that I would be in a big movie with an actor like Shah Rukh Khan and laughed about it.”

He also added, “After I finished Raja Rani, Siva asked what I’m doing next and I just told him I have this and that dates free. He countered it by saying I might go ahead and work with a big actor like Thalapathy Vijay. We may have talked about all of this as a joke but it all has eventually happened.”
