Fahadh Faasil has always maintained that he doesn’t want to be a star and is happy as an actor who is known for his performance. And if we observe his filmography, he has tried his best and still in that process to do justice to what he believes in. His last release Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum is an excellent example of this. The actor is now making his Tamil debut with Velaikkaran. The makers have released the second poster on Fahadh’s birthday, which indicates that both he and Sivakarthikeyan have equal roles.

The film is hyped as it marks the maiden venture of Sivakarthikeyan and Mohan Raja. Interestingly, it is also the first time when Sivakarthikeyan will be romancing the Lady Superstar Nayanthara. The makers are releasing Velaikkaran in Malayalam version to cash in Fahadh's popularity. Recently, the teaser of the film was released and it got 2.5 Million+ views in just two days. With whatever we saw in the teaser, it seems like Fahadh has made an impressive Tamil debut. There’s just a glimpse of Prakash Raj in the teaser with an eccentric grin, which has left the audience curious about his character.
The other actors who will be seen in pivotal roles are RJ Balaji, Sathish, Sneha, Robo Shankar, Vijay Vasanth, Thambi Ramaiah, Vinodhini Vaidyanathan and Thambi Ramaiah. The Kolaveri boy Anirudh Ravichander is composing the music. We will not be surprised if the film’s music tops the chart. The National award winner Vivek Harshan will be editing the film, which assures that the scenes will be cut to cut. The film is slated for a September release.
