Following the debacle of Vivegam, Ajith has pinned high hopes Viswasam, which was officially launched earlier this year. The project was supposed to go on the floors in March. However, it had to be postponed due to the Kollywood strike that was due to a stand-off between Tamil Film Producers Council and Digital Service Providers.
The shoot of Viswasam finally went on the floors in early May and the makers are said to have completed over 50 percent of shoot already. At 3.40 am on Thursday morning, the first look posters of Viswasam were released, much to the delight of Ajithâ€™s fans who have long waited for an announcement from the team.
The first look poster features Ajith in dual avatars â€“ in salt-and-pepper and fully dyed black look. Both the looks feature Ajith twirling his mustache. While there are rumours that Ajith plays dual roles in the film, sources close to the team have clarified that he merely appears in two different looks.
Originally, the film was planned as Diwali 2018 release but now, it has now been confirmed that it will only hit the screens during Pongal 2019. The project, being bankrolled by Satyajothi Films, features Nayanthara as the leading lady. The project marks the fourth consecutive collaboration of Ajith and Siva.
In a first time collaboration, D Imman has been finalised to compose music. He recently revealed that heâ€™s thrilled to be part of the project. The film also features Yogi Babu, Vivek, Kovai Sarla and Thambi Ramaiah among others in important roles.
The rest of the cast and crew is yet unknown. It is rumoured that Shraddha Srinath might have bagged an important role. Viswasam will be made on a much lesser budget than Vivegam, which was a whopping Rs 120 crore action spectacle. Meanwhile, there are reports that Ajith might next join hands with Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru director H Vinoth or Prabhudeva for his next project.
