Nayanthara and Sivakarthikeyan starrer Velaikkaran is written and directed by Mohan Raja. Velaikkaran also features Malayalam top actor Fahadh Faasil. Touted to be an action-thriller, Velaikkaran will have music composed by Anirudh Ravichander.
The story of Velaikkaran is based on food adulteration and how a young man, played by Sivakarthikeyan, deals with it. Besides Nayanthara and Sivakarthikeyan, Velaikkaran also features Prakash Raj, Sneha and Thambi Ramaiah.
Speaking to a leading tabloid, director Mohan Raja said that Nayanthara plays a strong character in Velaikkaran while Sivakarthikeyan plays a guy who goes against the protagonist. “In Velaikkaran, Nayanthara plays Mrunalini, her character acts as a huge strength for the hero Sivakarthikeyan, who plays a righteous guy named Arivu,” said Mohan Raja.
Velaikkaran will be the first time teaming up for Sivakarthikeyan and Nayanthara, and this makes the film more exciting. Another interesting aspect of Velaikkaran is that Bollywood and Marathi actor Mahesh Manjrekar is also a part of the cast and plays a very important role.
“Manjrekar plays a CEO of a company in the movie. He has got the perfect corporate look for the film and looks sophisticated. There is also a twist in the film. His relationship with Fahadh will be revealed only in the second half of the film and that changes the course of the story. He has already finished shooting his part,” a source was quoted in a leading daily.
The makers of Velaikkaran have now released few photos from the movie which are quite interesting:
