Actor Ajith, who was last seen playing an Interpol agent in Vivegam, is gearing up for his next Viswasam in which he will be next seen in a full-length rural avatar. Directed by Siva, Viswasam has Ajith and Nayanthara as the lead pair and the film marks Ajith's fourth-time collaboration with director Siva.
The film will hit the theaters for Pongal 2019 while Rajinikanthâ€™s Petta which was initially slated to clash with Viswasam will now release ahead on January 10. Viswasam makers are planning to release the film in Russia and Ukraine as well.
Seventh Sense Cinema, who had released Rajinikanthâ€™s 2.0 recently in Russia, will be taking care of the release of Viswasam in these two countries and the film is scheduled to release in more than eight cities.
The film might not have a simultaneous dubbed release in Telugu. According to reliable sources in the trade, since three major Telugu releases â€“ Ram Charanâ€™s Vinaya Vidheya Rama, Venkatesh and Varun Tejâ€™s F2 and the first part of NTR biopic have been confirmed as Sankranti releases, the chances of the film to have a Telugu release look very slim.
In a recent interview to Tamil magazine Cinema Vikatan director Siva told, "Viswasam will be entirely a new format of Ajith sir's film. It will be a full and full family entertainer which happens in the backdrop of village called Koduvilarpatti in Theni district and after interval it switches to city backdrop. It is not a dual avatar film, Ajith sir's character name is Thukku Durai who is a local ruffian in Madurai and for the first time he will be seen speaking in Madurai slang. The star cast has a handful of comedians who will be traveling with the hero in different stages of the film. Nayanthara who is teaming up with the actor for the fourth time will be seen in a character called Niranjana and it will be a spoken about powerful role for her in the film. I am working with composer Imman for the first time and the album has 5 songs. Imman has composed all the five in different styles".
The star cast includes Vivek, Robo Shankar, Thambi Ramaiah, Kovai Sarala, Sandhya Janak, Yogi Babu, Kalairani, Bose Venkat, Sujatha Sivakumar, Ramesh Thilak, Jangiri Madhumitha and Namo Narayana. D Imman is the music composer of Viswasam and the core technical crew includes Vetri for camera work and editing by Ruben. Presented by TG Thyagarajan, Viswasam is being bankrolled by Arjun Thyagarajan and Sendhil Thyagarajan under the banner Sathya Jyothi Films.
