Actor Sivakarthikeyan is quite busy in k town both as an artist and producer. The Namma Veettu Pillai actor was last seen on screens in the romedy drama Prince which hit the theaters under the direction of story teller K V Anudeep with Ukrainian actress Maria Ryaboshapka in the female lead part. The venture which got released amid high anticipation did not live up to the expectations of the audience. Despite that, the actor’s star power was adequate to keep the box office rolling. The actor who is basking in the success of the drama, is gearing up for the release of his upcoming Tamil Telugu bilingual project christened Maaveeran. The Telugu version of the drama is titled Mahaveerudu. Storyteller Madonne Ashwin of Mandela fame has written, and directed the drama. The entertainer which went on floors last year with a small pooja ceremony is now wrapped and is in the post production stage getting fine tuned for release.
The production team has now announced the release date of the flick over a video on social media. Nearly two minutes odd video cut gives us a few behind the scene shots, and then presents the release date in the end. Maaveeran is all set to hit the screens on 14th of July this year. The production unit had earlier announced that the entertainer will be hitting the theaters on 11th of August this year. But since Jailer is releasing a day before that there were talks that Maaveeran might have a July release. As expected, the production unit has announced the change in the release date.
Earlier this year, the production unit had unveiled the first single track ‘Scene ah scene ah’ from the movie. Actor Sivakarthikeyan shot for the song sequence with nearly 500 group dancers. The song was shot using a mocobot camera. Rockstar Anirudh Ravichander had crooned the number. The song had a massive response from fans of the actor. Actor Sivakarthikeyan grew long hair to play his character in the drama. His look in the flick got tongues wagging as it resembled superstar Rajinikanth’s much celebrated character Suriya from Thalapathy. This has amplified expectations on the venture not only among his aficionados but even amidst the general audience. The teaser of the entertainer is expected to be released soon.
Apart from actor Sivakarthikeyan, Maaveeran has actress Aditi Shankar portraying female lead roles. Maaveeran will be the sophomore film of actress Aditi Shankar who made her debut in Kollywood in actor Karthi’s Viruman. Film maker Mysskin is said to have essayed the antagonist role. The casting department of the drama has veteran actress Saritha, Goundamani, Yogi babu, Monisha Blessy, Sunil Reddy, and Koushik Mahata in various other supporting roles. Music director Bharath Sankar has been roped in to compose music for the flick. Cinematographer Vidhu Ayyanna has shouldered camera for the movie. Editor Philomin Raj has been bestowed with the responsibility to trim the project. Art director Kumar Gangappan has designed the background for the entertainer. Action director Phoenix Prabhu has choreographed action moves for the movie. The project is bankrolled by Arun Viswa for the production house Shanthi Talkies.
On the work front, actor Sivakarthikeyan who was last seen on screens in the romantic comedy drama Prince is currently busy shooting for his next venture tentatively christened as SK 21 under the direction of film maker Rajkumar Periyasamy in which he will be collaborating with actress Sai Pallavi.
