The first look poster of Ajay Gnanamuthu‘s Cobra is out now. Bankrolled by Lalith Kumar’s Seven Screen Studio, the film stars actor Vikram and marks the Tamil film debut of Srinidhi Shetty of KGF fame. Cobra marks the 58th film of the actor.
The poster features a bespectacled, beefed up Vikram yelling in front of a mirror with his back facing the camera, along with six reflections of his on his sides. There’s a priest, a politician, a stout man, two suited up men and a casually clothed man with shades serving as his reflections.
We also find a reflection of mathematical equations and some coding in the mirror. It seems like the actor will be essaying various characters in the film, similar to what he did in Shankar‘s 2015 drama-fantasy I. An impressive poster from the team.
The film’s music director AR Rahman took to Twitter to unveil the first look.

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Earlier Sivakumar Vijayan was roped in as the cinematographer but has now been replaced by debutant Harish Kannan while Amaran is the art director and, Bhuvan Srinivasan is the editor. 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.
Last month, the team wrapped up with the third schedule of the film. Director Ajay Gnanamuthu also took to Twitter to congratulate cricketer Irfan Pathan on his retirement. Earlier, Vikram is said to have performed without a body double for a fight sequence shot in the rain in ECR, Chennai. A massive fight sequence is also said to have been shot in Kolkata.
