About the trailer launch, Y Not Studios, producers of Vikram Vedha posted on Twitter: “Mark the date and time. 22nd June 5PM. Our very own @Siva_Kartikeyan is going to release #VikramVedha trailer @ActorMadhavan #VJSethupathi”.

The story is said to be loosely based on Vikramaditya-Vedala tale. The film also has an ensemble of actors including Varalakshmi Sarathkumar, Kathir and Shraddha Srinath.
