The first look poster was unveiled recently on the actor’s birthday. It featured a bespectacled Sivakarthikeyan stylishly seated on a sofa with bloody hands. Surgical scalpels, their blades, penknives, and a bunch of scissors all over with a slightly blood-stained floor also found a place in the poster.
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, Kanaa fame Darshan and Kolamaavu Kokila fame Tony will also play significant roles in the film.

Anbarivu master will choreograph action sequences with Pallavi Singh designing costumes.
Director Nelson had earlier mentioned that the crew would be shooting at Goa and Chennai. “The film will have a perfect mixture of action, thriller, and comedy elements and will not stick to just one genre,” he added.
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.”
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 released its first look poster.
