The first look poster of Sivakarthikeyan’s next with Indru Netru Naalai fame director R Ravikumar SK 14 titled Ayalaan is out now. It is being jointly bankrolled by RD Raja’s 24 AM Studios and Kotapadi J Rajesh’s KJR Studios. While the two production houses are associating for the first time for the film, KJR Studios is pairing up with the actor for the third time after Hero, and Doctor.
Sivakarthikeyan and an alien are seen lying on grass with lollipops in hand and butterflies all about them. Both are smiling and staring in the exact same manner. A pretty and intriguing poster, I think.
KJR Studios took to Twitter to unveil the poster.

An Alexa LF camera, which is particularly used in Hollywood, has been used for filming the project, marking the first Tamil film to make use of a hi-tech camera. While actor Vijay‘s previous film Bigil had also used the same, the Ajay Devgn, Junior NTR, and Ram Charan starrer RRR helmed by SS Rajamouli is currently doing so.
