Actor Sivakarthikeyan's next release will be Velaikkaran - the title of one of Rajinikanth’s super hit films that came out in 1987. It is being directed by Mohan Raja after the unanimously acclaimed blockbuster Thani Oruvan. Recently, the team wrapped up the shoot in Rajasthan after shooting the final leg.

The film has a phenomenal pre-release buzz as leading star Sivakarthikeyan has teamed up with director Mohan Raja and is getting ready to hit the screens during Christmas this year. All eyes are on Velaikkaran, as it needs to be seen if they can continue their winning streak.

The music of the film is scored by Anirudh Ravichander, who is teaming up with Sivakarthikeyan for the fifth time on screen. The recently released single Karuthavanellam Galeeja, garnered a hugely positive response. Now, the makers have released the second single, Iraiva, written by Viveka. The song which is sung by Anirudh and Jonita Gandhi, expresses both love and pain.

Apparently, this is the first time Nayanthara, mostly known for working with leading stars, has teamed up with Sivakarthikeyan, who is fast rising to the top with five back-to-back blockbusters.

The story of the film revolves around the issue of food adulteration and how a common man stands up against the scam.The film boasts an all-star cast, including Prakash Raj, Sneha, Rohini, RJ Balaji, Thambi Ramaiah, Yogi Babu, Sathish, Robo Shankar and Vijay Vasanth. The film also marks the Tamil debut of Malayalam A-lister Fahadh Faasil. Mohan Raja believes he will leave a lasting impact with his role.

Being produced by RD Raja under his 24AM Studios banner, Ramji is cranking the camera for the film and Antony L Ruben is taking care of the cuts. The film was expected to release during Ayudha Pooja, however, the makers announced that the film will be postponed for the Christmas weekend.
