The tussle with director Shankar and Vadivelu which began while the actor was shooting for the sequel of the blockbuster drama Imsai Arasan 23 aam Pulikesi, kept him out of the industry for a long period. The actor seems to have resolved all the issues, and is gearing up to be back on screens with his upcoming entertainer titled Naai Sekar Returns. Film maker Suraj of Marudhamalai fame has penned and helmed the movie. The flick which went on floors a while back, has now been done and dusted ready for release. Now, the production house has dropped the trailer of the drama on social media, and has announced the release date of the film.
Naai Sekar Returns will be hitting the theaters on 9th of this month. Taking to their official twitter account, the production house shared the trailer of the drama, and wrote, “Presenting the trailer of Naai Sekar Returns. Witness the comic tale of India’s 1st dog kidnapper at the cinemas on dec 9! Naai Sekar Returns on Dec 9. Vaigai Puyal Vadivelu. Director Suraj.

The nearly two-minute trailer opens with a voiceover complaining, “Dude Someone has kidnaped Angelina.” We have a chic entry of veteran actor Anandaraj saying, “Someone stole my child uh? Capture all child abductors, people who impound dogs, those who pickpockets, muggers, and thugs in this town.” Then we get the introduction of actor Vadivelu dressed up in a suit. The song crooned by the actor starts playing in the background. Apparently, actor Vadivelu plays the role of a dog kidnapper in the drama. Master Prabhu Deva has choreographed a number in the entertainer. Since the actor is returning to the screens after five years, the expectations are massive on the project.
Earlier talking about the film to a leading media house in the state, storyteller Suraj stated, “Naai Sekar Returns will be a spectacular comeback for actor Vadivelu to the industry. The flick will be an out and out comedy movie. There is comedy even in the song sequences. We have a funny number in the movie that includes a few funny elements like the ones in Oorvasi and Petta Rap. So, I thought it would be good to bring master Prabhu Deva to choreograph the number. When we approached him, he agreed without hesitation. The number has come out well and Vadivelu has done some amazing moves in the song. I am overwhelmed at the fact that he still has the same energy level. I am sure the audience too will love it.”
Apart from actor Vadivelu, Naai Sekar Returns has actress Sivaangi Krishnakumar of Cook With Comali fame in a pivotal part. The casting department of the entertainer has actors Redin Kingsley, Shivani Narayanan, Anandaraj, Munishkanth, Rao Ramesh, RJ Vigneshkanth, Sanjana Singh, Lollu Sabha Seshu, T. M. Karthik, and Prashanth Rangaswamy in various other supporting roles. Music director Santhosh Narayanan has handled the musical instruments for the drama. Cinematographer S. Yuvan has taken care of the cinematography division of the flick. Editor Selva R. K has trimmed the project. The movie is bankrolled by Subaskaran Allirajah for his home banner Lyca Productions.
On the work front, actor Vadivelu who had his last outing in Mersal will soon begin to shoot for his upcoming project titled Maamannan helmed by Mari Selvaraj in which he will be seen alongside actors Fahadh Faasil and Keerthy Suresh, for the sequel of Chandramukhi directed by P. Vasu in which he will be sharing the screen space with actor Raghava Lawrence, and for an untitled venture in which he will be sharing the screen space with actor Vijay Sethupathi.
