The first look poster of Sivakarthikeyan-Priyanka Mohan starrer Doctor is out now. The film helmed by Kolamaavu Kokila fame Nelson Dilipkumar is jointly bankrolled under Sivakarthikeyan’s home banner Sivakarthikeyan Productions and Kotapadi J Rajesh’s KJR Studios. This will mark the second association of KJR Studios with the actor after their previous Hero.
A spectacled Sivakarthikeyan is stylishly seated on a sofa with bloody hands in the poster. We also find surgical scalpels, their blades, penknives, and a bunch of scissors all over with a slightly blood-stained floor.
Sivakarthikeyan took to Twitter to announce the news.

Priyanka Mohan who shot to fame in Telugu with Nani‘s Gang Leader will play the female lead. Apart from the lead pair, Yogi Babu, Archana, Ilavarasu and Kolamaavu Kokila fame Tony will also play significant roles in the film.
Vinay Rai will reportedly play the antagonist in the action-thriller. He was last seen essaying a negative shade in director Mysskin‘s Thupparivaalan. Anirudh Ravichander is composing music, Vijay Kartik Kannan will handle the camera, Nirmal will edit and DRK Kiran will helm art. Anbarivu master will choreograph action sequences with Pallavi Singh designing costumes.
“The film will have a perfect mixture of action, thriller, and comedy elements and will not stick to just one genre. We have planned on shooting in Chennai and Goa with the stellar cast brought on board,” said director Nelson.
Speaking about his rapport with Sivakarthikeyan, the director said, “I have known Siva for about twelve years, right from his television days. We always use to talk about working on a film together. Once I completed Kolamaavu Kokila, I tailor-made a script for him and narrated it. He immediately agreed to work on it and now we’ve gone on floors.”
Doctor which commenced its shoot in December, will hit screens in 2020, although the exact date hasn’t been revealed.
Meanwhile, Sivakarthikeyan will also be seen in SK14 titled Ayalaan which recently commenced with its fourth schedule. Helmed by Indru Netru Naalai fame director R Ravikumar, the film co-stars Rakul Preet Singh. His previous outing Hero is streaming on Amazon Prime. The action-thriller by PS Mithran that spoke of the business of education and destruction of intellectual property saw Sivakarthikeyan playing the role of a superhero.
