Sivakarthikeyan-Fahadh Faasil duo’s Velaikkaran is the next big release in Kollywood!
The second half of 2017 has commenced and Kollywood has witnessed the release of a couple of big ticket films like VIP 2 and Vivegam. Director Mohan Raja’s Velaikkaran starring Sivakarthikeyan, Fahadh Faasil and Nayanthara in the lead roles is the next biggie waiting in the pipeline. RD Raja of 24 AM Studios is funding this movie, scheduled to hit screens worldwide on September 29.
Director Mohan Raja’s last release Thani Oruvan was a big success. Velaikkaran also lies on similar lines of a socially relevant commercial entertainer. While Thani Oruvan was about medical mafia, Velaikaaran discusses about food adulteration and how a slum dweller fights against the corrupt system. The movie marks the debut of Malayalam actor Fahadh Faasil in Tamil cinema.
Fahadh is playing a full length character alongside Sivakarthikeyan in the film. His character named as Aadhi is an unique role that has several shades. There are different layers to the relationship between the lead characters played by Fahadh and Sivakarthikeyan. It begins as a friendship; there is also a guru-sishya element and it also has a clash of personalities.
Velaikkaran also stars Prakash Raj, RJ Balaji, Rohini and Sathish in supporting roles. Music department is handled by young sensation Anirudh Ravichander.
