The first look and motion poster of Harbhajan Singh–Arjun Sarja starrer Friendship is out. The film directed by John Paul Raj and Sham Surya is being produced by John Paul Raj and Stalin’s Seantoa Studio in association with Cinemaass Studio. The film marks the second production of Seantoa Studio.
We’re shown a blackboard filled with chemical equations which suddenly starts to advance towards us. Gradually, the name of the production studio, ‘Seantoa Studio’, is revealed followed by a ruled sheet of paper comprising motivational quotes and the name of the second banner, ‘Cinemaass Studio’. A small door shuts after, taking us into a public library with power fluctuation where the images of Losliya, Arjun, and Harbhajan Singh, all clad in black, appear. In the end, we find Harbhajan bowling to someone which then cuts to a tub of popcorn spilling over, forming the words ‘Coming Soon’.
The motion poster screams anything but ‘Friendship’ with an eerie music score and colour tone.
Harbhajan took to Twitter to put out both the posters.

The campus-based story reportedly deals with a group of friends. It is also said to have elements like sports and politics in it.
Recently, a report on the Times Of India mentioned that Harbhajan would be saying the role of a Punjab-based student pursuing mechanical engineering at a college in Coimbatore. “His character is that of someone who had discontinued studies for a few years after completing school,” mentioned the report.
Popular Big Boss Tamil contestant Losliya Mariyanesan will play the female lead in the movie, marking her debut. Apart from the lead cast, Sathish, J Sathish Kumar, Harbhajan’s Tamil teacher and manager Saravanan Pandiyan and several others have landed significant roles. Santha Kumar C is handling cinematography, DM Udhayakumar is handling music, Deepak S Dwaraknath is on the edit, and Mahendran on art. PS Raj is penning the dialogues, Vimal Rambo is choreographing stunt and Sham Surya is doubling up as the dance choreographer.
Friendship wrapped up the first schedule in March before the nationwide lockdown was announced and will continue filming once the situation improves.
