Former India cricketer Irfan Pathan is all set to mark his debut on the silver screen with a Tamil film. He is part of one of the most anticipated films of the year, Chiyaan Vikram starrer Cobra. The much-awaited teaser of the movie dropped Saturday morning and it has set the internet on fire. The film has been directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu who has previously made blockbuster hits.
The buzz was already around the film last year when it was revealed that Irfan Pathan will be making his Kollywood debut. The cricketer’s look was unveiled on social media last year on October 29 on the occasion of his birthday and it had received a lot of positive reviews.
Irfan is playing the role of a Turkish Interpol Officer who is after Vikram, the lead role of the film, who is a genius mathematician. Srinidhi Shetty is the female lead in the movie apart from the superstar Vikram and Irfan Pathan. A close to 100-second teaser gives a glimpse of what the film is all about and the fans will be eagerly waiting for it to release in the theatres.
Here’s the teaser:
Cobra’s shoot disrupted due to COVID-19 pandemic
Cobra is touted to be an action thriller but is also one of the movies whose shooting was disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic last year. The whole team including Irfan Pathan had travelled to Russia to shoot a few sequences. But the nationwide lockdowns back home and even in other countries meant they had to return to India. Having said that, the shooting seems to be completed now.
The superstar hero Vikram was seen in as many as seven looks in the first look poster which had taken the fans’ excitement to its peak. The release date of the film is yet to be finalized and the makers will be hoping for the theatres’ occupancy to return to 100%. Currently, the government has decided to only allow 50% occupancy.
