On Friday (August 20), the makers of Chiyaan 60 unveiled the title and first-look poster of the Vikram starrer. The film is now titled Mahaan. It is directed by Karthik Subbaraj and also stars Vikram’s son Dhruv Vikram, Simran, Vani Bhojan and Bobby Simha in pivotal roles. This is Vikram and his son Dhruv’s first collaboration where they will be sharing the same screen space together.
Filmmaker Karthik Subbaraj shared the teaser of Mahaan on his Twitter handle.
In the teaser of Mahaan, we see folk theatre artistes applying their make-up on as they are all set to tell a mythological tale involving characters with supernatural powers. Then enters Vikram on a motorbike and he is seen carrying a prop behind his bike. It seems he is playing a mythical character with multiple arms. From the first look, we can assume that Vikram is someone with power and strength. The entire teaser is in black and white.
