Initially scheduled for Deepavali release, Ajith’s Viswasam was then shifted to Pongal 2019. But lately, there were doubts about the film getting released for Pongal too.
And now, an end has been put to the confusion with an official announcement from the movie’s team stating that the film will hit the screens for the harvest festival.
KJR Studios, producers of Nayanthara’s critically and commercially acclaimed Aramm and Prabhu Deva’s comedy entertainer Gulaebaghavali, has procured the Tamil Nadu theatrical rights of Viswasam from producers Sathyajyothi Films.
Rajesh of KJR Studios who is super confident about the output of the Thala Ajith starrer, has said in a statement that the film would hit the screens for Pongal.
Directed by Siva, Nayanthara plays Ajith’s romantic interest in Viswasam which has musical score by D Imman.
Recently, director Siva and Sathyajyothi Films had initiated a probe to find out how a few stills from the sets of Ajith’s Viswasam made their way to social media.
Looking at the leaked stills, it seems like Ajith is shooting an action sequence inside a cage with onlookers cheering him on. The actor is seen sporting a white shirt and dhoti with the salt-and-pepper hairdo and a thick moustache.
In the photos, Ajith can be seen in a ‘desi’ avatar that he carries off like a boss. He can also be seen sporting grey hair.
Interestingly, Telugu actor Ravi Awana can be seen alongside Ajith in the leaked photos and his looks suggest that he is playing the villain in Viswasam. He is best known for his performance in the Nani starrer Krishna Arjun Yuddham.
Ravi tweeted: “Shooting for my Tamil debut movie with one and only Thala #Ajith sir …Pleasure working with you and learnt many things from you as an actor and human both.”
