Vettaiyan inspired from a real-life story

The title, Vettaiyan, which was inspired by one of the iconic characters played by Rajinikanth in the 2005 horror-comedy movie Chandramukhi, is not the only interesting aspect of the film. As per reports, the film is inspired by the real-life story of a retired cop who fights against the system to reopen a case for the pursuit of justice. Although the story is very similar to the superstar’s last blockbuster outing Jailer, fans are convinced that the multi-starrer project has a lot more to offer! Nonetheless, the star-studded film with an intriguing storyline heightens the hype around the film among audiences. 

The film’s teaser, which was released earlier, showcases Rajinikanth reading a book about Subhash Chandra Bose, hinting at the character's core ideology. The film is touted to be an action-packed film with a strong social message.
