It seems like Vivek Oberoi quite enjoys doing negative roles in Malayalam cinema. After his successful antagonist role in the Mohanlal starrer Lucifer, he is back to don the villain look for another Malayalam film Kaduva. Helmed by Shaji Kailas, Kaduva will feature Prithviraj Sukumaran in the lead role of Kaduvakkunnel Kuruvachan. 

Sharing a working still from the film Kaduva, Prithviraj Sukumaran tagged Vivek Oberoi saying he is eagerly waiting for his antagonist. The still features Prithviraj in a fight with police personnel while he awaits his villain. He took to Instagram and wrote: "Waiting for the antagonist be like…! @vivekoberoi Game on! 🤜 #KaduvakunnelKuruvachan @kaduvathefilm"

The film is reportedly set in the 90s and also features Arjun Ashokan, Samyuktha Menon, Vijayaraghavan, Sudev Nair and Siddique in pivotal roles. The confrontation between Mundakkayam-based rubber planter Kuruvachan and the police force is a pivotal element that drives the story. In the working still shared earlier by the actor, he can be seen bashing the cops and beating them black and blue.

Prithviraj will be collaborating with Shaji again after their film together, Simhasanam. The film is co-produced by Prithviraj Productions and Listin Stephen’s Magic Frames.
