The first-look of director Pandiraj’s next,  starring Sivakarthikeyan, Aishwarya Rajesh and others is out. The film is titled Namma Veetu Pillai, inspired by the title of MG Ramachandran’s 1965 film Enga Veetu Pillai.

The poster features Sivakarthikeyan holding a sledgehammer, with other men running towards him. The film is pitched as a rural family entertainer and is set in and around Karaikudi and Theni. This is director Pandiraj’s next after Kadaikutty Singam.

In July, it was speculated that the film has been titled Enga Veetu Pillai. However, Vijaya Productions, who backed the MGR film said in a press note that they had the rights to the title, and did not sell it to Sun Pictures, the producers of the Sivakarthikeyan film.

Sivakarthikeyan reportedly plays Aishwarya Rajesh’s brother, and the story is said to be based on their relationship. Anu Emmanuel stars in the lead opposite him.

Actress Meera Mitun, who was part of Bigg Boss Season 3, recently joined the cast. She tweeted the news and said she hoped to meet Sivakarthikeyan soon.

Cinematographer Natty, directors Bharathirajaa and Samuthirakani have important roles, and RK Suresh, Soori and Yogi Babu are part of the cast. The film has D Imman as the music composer, Nirav Shah as the cinematographer, Anthony Ruben as the editor and actor Veera Samar as the art director.

Meanwhile, Sivakarthikeyan is also gearing up for the release of his sci-fi film Hero with director PS Mithran, co-starring Kalyani Priyadarshan in the lead. A poster of the film, resembling a comic book page was released recently. The film is pitched as a thriller, starring Arjun Sarja as the antagonist. It releases on December 20.

Sivakarthikeyan also has a film with Vignesh Shivan, which is in pre-production stages and is likely to begin in September or October.

Meanwhile, Aishwarya Rajesh has a number of films lined up including Dhruva Natchathiram, the Vada Chennai sequel, Mei, and the Telugu remake of Kanaa.
