Not-so-unexpectedly, Vijay TV has acquired the satellite broadcasting rights of actor Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming film Velaikkaran.
The film’s first-look was revealed last week depicting Sivakarthikeyan clad immaculately in a suit but holding a briefcase and a sickle in his two hands. Nayantara, the ‘queen bee’ of Tamil films, is paired up opposite Sivakarthikeyan for the first time in this film which is directed by ‘Jayam’ Raja, elder brother of actor ‘Jayam’ Ravi.
Actress Sneha, who wasn’t keen to do many films in sister or sister-in-law’s roles after her marriage, has essayed a powerful role in the film which also has Mollywood’s Fahadh Faasil (husband of actress Nazriya Nazim) debuting in Tamil films.
Sivakarthikeyan worked as television anchor with Vijay TV for many years before turning actor and as such, he is often celebrated and praised sky-high at almost all of Vijay TV’s functions and in this backdrop, it is not so surprising that Vijay TV had taken the trouble of paying a huge amount to beat its competitors in acquiring the satellite broadcasting rights of Velaikkaran.
