On the occasion of Fahadh Faasil’s birthday on Tuesday, the makers of Tamil film Velaikkaran released the film’s second poster and it features the birthday boy along with Sivakarthikeyan, with whom he locks horns in the film. Being directed by Mohan Raja, the film also stars 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 rumoured to be friends-turned-foe. According to director Mohan, he wanted a net-gen actor for the antagonist’s role. Talking to Times of India, he 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 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-sishya 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. The film is gearing up Dussehra release and will take Mahesh Babu’s Spyder head on at the box-office.
