Actor Sivakarthikeyan will reportedly essay a nurse as part of his multiple avatars in his next yet-untitled Tamil project.

"He dons multiple roles in the film and in one of them; he will be playing a nurse. It’s not sure whether this role is going to be part of a song," a source from the film’s unit said.

International make-up artist Sean Foot, who has worked on films such as ‘Avatar’ and ‘I’, has been brought on board to handle Sivakarthikeyan’s look in a drag.

The film is being directed by debutant Bhagyaraj Bharathi and stars Keerthy Suresh as the female lead.

Produced by RD Raja, the film has music by Anirudh Ravichander and PC Sreeram will crank the camera.
