With Thaandavam releasing today, Vikram has lined up a major surprise for his ardent fans. For the first time in his career, he is sporting a 'six pack' for one of the fight sequences in the movie. This is expected to be one of the biggest highlights in the film. Though, Vikram has a very muscular physique which he has flaunted in his earlier movies, this is the first time he is sporting such abs in his career.
He hired the same trainer, Alkhas Joseph, who works with Suriya, the other hot 'six-pack' hero. The trainer is impressed with Vikram's 100 percent commitment and dedication to fitness and is surprised that Vikram's muslces are fresh given his age. Joseph even travelled with Vikram to the London shooting locations.
This 'six pack' image has been splashed all over the media by the producers on the day of the release. Superb marketing move, one must say as the expectations have shot up after seeing this dashing macho image.
