While the title and the first poster were released on the eve of his birthday on June 21, two more posters were released the next day as a birthday gift to his fans. The film’s shooting has been progressing at breakneck speed and, as announced earlier, the makers recently reconfirmed that the film is on track for release this Deepavali.
The makers recently finished the film’s Chennai schedule and are heading to the US next to shoot the final schedule. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, the film stars Vijay as a US-returned character who vows to bring about change in his society. Veteran actor Radha Ravi is tipped to be playing the antagonist in the film. Keerthy Suresh joins hands with Vijay after last year’s Bairavaa. The film also stars Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, Prem Kumar, and Yogi Babu. The film’s introductory song was shot in Los Vegas not very long ago.
AR Rahman has been officially signed to compose music for the project, which will mark his reunion with Murugadoss after the Hindi version of Ghajini. Girish Gangadharan, the young lensman whose recent work includes Kali and Solo, is cranking the camera. National award-winning editor Sreekar Prasad, who has worked with Murugadoss in projects such as Thuppakki and Spyder, is also part of the film.
All eyes are on Sarkar as the combination of Vijay and Murugadoss has set the bar very high. Two of Vijay’s best films in recent years have come from Murugadoss and this has naturally built high anticipation around their next project.
