Chiyaan Vikram 58, directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu, has been titled Cobra. Bankrolled by Lalith Kumar’s Seven Screen Studio, the film stars actors Vikram and marks the Tamil film debut of Srinidhi Shetty of KGF fame. The makers have released a motion poster revealing the title.

Two cobras are seen slithering on a golden ornament in the motion poster backed by an eerie background score that doesn’t seem to resemble an AR Rahman composition. A crown is also seen to feature in the poster.

The film features Irfan Pathan essaying the role of a Turkish Interpol officer while 13th Belief fame Vidya Lakshmi, KS Ravikumar, Shane Nigam, Super Singer fame Poovaiyar and Comali director Pradeep Ranganathan are playing crucial roles.

Earlier Sivakumar Vijayan was roped in as the cinematographer but has now been replaced by debutant Harish Kannan while Amaran is the art director. Dancer Sathish is choreographing the dance and Dhilip Subbarayan is choreographing stunts. The film is being shot in Chennai, Kerala, Kolkatta, Russia and various other places in India and abroad.

Recently, the team was reportedly found filming a fight sequence in the rain at ECR, Chennai. Vikram is said to have performed without a body double for this fight.

Cobra touted to be an action film, has completed 50% of the shooting and is slated for an April 2020 release.

Here is the title poster.
