Fahad Fazil is making his Tamil debut through this movie in which Nayanthara handles the lead female role.
Sivakarthikeyan in a press meet on Monday spoke about the movie. “It’s about the daily struggles of the layman and director Mohan Raja has brought to life a story that addresses various issues of the hard-working common man,” Questioned if the response to his previous movie Remo pushed him to pick a thoughtful film like Velaikkaran, Sivakarthikeyan said, “I can’t make new films as a reaction to being trolled. I wanted to work with Mohan Raja after watching Thani Oruvan; that’s why I approached him for this project.”
