The second look poster of Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming movie Velaikkaran was released today on the occasion of Fahad Faasil’s birthday. The poster revealed that the Fahad Fasil and Sivakarthikeyan will be playing the lead role in the soon-to-be-released entertainer that has been said to have a strong social angle. The producers also announced that a teaser trailer for the movie will be released on August 14. Also associated with the movie are Nayanthara, Prakash Raj, Sneha, Rohini, Sathish and RJ Balaji who would all be playing big roles in the movie.
The movie, expected to be a fall blockbuster, has been directed and written by Jayam Raja who also directed the super blockbuster Thani Oruvan back in 2015. Reportedly, the theme of the film focusses on the menace of food adulteration, its effects on the psyche of the poor and how one young man straight from the slums fights back against it. The ensemble cast is supported by music direction by Anirudh Ravichander and cinematography by Ramji. The film has been produced by R.D Raja under the banner of 24AM Studios.
The film’s producers must be encouraged after the excellent response the first and second look posters have reduced from the Tamil audience. The theatrical release was origianally supposed to be set for 25 August 2017, but has since been postponed to 29 September 2017. The movie was mostly shot in Mumbai, although a part was also shot in Malaysia, including the climax. The movie is also the first time that the Malayalam actor Fahad Faasil has dubbed his own voice in Tamil for a movie.
