The trailer of Nelson Dilipkumar's Sivakarthikeyan-starrer Doctor was released recently, leaving the star's fans excited. Rumours were strife that the action comedy flick will premiere on Disney+ Hotstar after the makers postponement its theatrical release from March 26 this year.
However, they announced a month ago that the film will have a theatrical release on October 9 in Tamil and Telugu with the title Doctor and Varun Doctor respectively. Priyanka Arul Mohan plays the female lead in the movie which has Yogi Babu, Vinay Rai, Redin Kingsley and others playing pivotal roles in it.
The team held a pre release event in Chennai on Friday where the director and actors let out a few secrets associated with the movie. Nelson revealed that unlike other films of Sivakarthikeyan, the actor will have only a few dialogues to deliver. According to him, Siva will be seen playing his character in a subtle manner for the first time in his career. A still of the actor dressed in an army uniform was also leaked from the event and started doing the rounds on social media in no time. The team was all praise for its music director Anirudh, who according to them, is the 'Soul of Doctor'.
The social media handle of KJR Studios, which is bankrolling the project, posted a few stills from the event, leaving movie buffs delighted. Redin Kingsley, who played a notable role in Nelson's debut film Kolamavu Kokila, spilled the beans on the impressive art work in Nelson's ongoing project Beast as well, making fans of Vijay elated.
In his speech, Sivakarthikeyan expressed happiness for acting along with Vinay, who will be seen as one of the antagonists in the movie. He, too, mentioned about the less number of dialogues he has in the film. Siva said, "I have tried to entertain without delivering punch lines and one-liners. This is something new for me."
