Sivakarthikeyan’s Velaikkaran is gearing up for a grand release this December. Originally slated to hit the screens for Dussehra, the release was postponed because the makers couldn’t complete the shoot as expected.  Directed by Mohan Raja, best known for Thani Oruvan, the film is said to shine the light on the food adulteration business and how a common man stands up against the scam. The film also stars Fahadh Faasil, Nayanthara and Sneha in crucial roles.

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.

In the film, it is said that are many shades to the bond of Fahadh and Sivakarthikeyan, who are rumored to be friends-turned-foes. According to director Mohan, he wanted a next-gen actor for the antagonist’s role. Talking to Times of India, he had said, “Fahadh is one of the very few actors in India who has been doing all kinds of challenging roles and bringing him on board helped me to create a new, evolved antagonist."

He also confirmed that unlike his last film Thani Oruvan, where the hero and the villain hardly share screen space, this time both Siva and Fahadh will appear throughout the film. “There are different shades to their relationship. It begins as a friendship; there is also a guru-shishya element and it also has a clash of personalities,” he said.

Fahadh is making his Tamil debut with this project and Mohan Raja believes he will leave a lasting impact with his role. After the runaway success of Remo for Siva and the critical and commercial acclaim for Mohan’s Thani Oruvan, all eyes are on Velaikkaran as it needs to be seen if they can continue their winning streak.
