Actors Vishal and Samantha Akkineni will be pairing up for the first time in a film titled ‘Irumbu Thirai’. The film is being directed by debutante PS Mithran and is being bankrolled by Vishal himself. Action King Arjun Sarja will be seen playing the antagonist in the film. Vishal will be seen playing an armed officer in Irumbu Thirai and while Samantha will be seen a doctor in the film. The makers released the teaser of the film yesterday, December 27th, 2017, in Chennai and the event was attended by the cast and crew of the film including lead actors Samantha Akkineni and Vishal. Speaking at the event, Vishal said that Irumbu Thirai is a good follow up movie after Thupparivaalan and will do good during its run in the cinema halls.
Vishal also adds that they wanted to have the teaser launch event because he always wants all his co-stars and crew members to attend all the film related events, and since Samantha was in Chennai shooting for a song, he wanted to organize the event. Samantha Akkineni, speaking at the event, said that it feels great to be in Chennai after a long time and she really misses the city. Samantha also adds that according to her, Irumbu Thirai will stand as the best film in Vishal’s career. When asked who she feels is better – Vishal, Vijay or Suriya – Samantha replied in a quirky fashion saying she doesn’t want to get into controversies and would say ‘No Comment’.
