Sivakarthikeyan-Nelson's doctor will leave on December 6

A photo of Sivakarthikeyan sharing a laugh with Nelson Dilipkumar has been doing social media rounds for a while, giving rise to speculation that the two could be working together on a movie. And now, it's official: the two are joining for a movie titled Doctor, and will begin filming this week.

Nelson, whose last director was Kolamavu Kokila, says, “It is an action comedy; one half of the film will take place in Chennai and the other half will be set in Goa. The reason we titled it Doctor is because the film has elements that are related to doctors. Siva will sport a new look and has knocked off some kilos, too. ”

This movie will mark the Kollywood Tollywood actress debut Priyanka Mohan (from the fame of the gang leader). Yogi Babu and Vinay have been chosen for important roles, and Anirudh Ravichander will compose music for this movie, he adds.

The team will begin shooting in Chennai from December 6. “Siva and I go back a long way; we’ve known each other for almost 14 years now. We've always wanted to work together. This script began as a small idea and I soon developed it. I liked the story and things fell in place. I am super happy to work with my friends Siva and Anirudh again, ”Nelson signs off.
