Recently, the first look poster of Michael, starring Sundeep Kishan, was released by Vijay Sethupathi (who also features in a special role in the film), on the actor's 35th birthday. The poster had the Maanagaram actor sporting a six-pack and holding a gun with a tagline of ‘only god forgives'. There is blood all over his body. The first look gives an impression that Michael is going to be an action extravaganza. Directed by Ranjit Jeyakodi, the film is produced by Sree Venkateswara Cinemas, in association with Karan C Productions.
In an interview with DT Next, Ranjit said, “Michael is being simultaneously shot in Tamil and Telugu and will release in Malayalam and Hindi. 75 percent of the shoot is complete and the final schedule will be shot in Chennai, Mumbai and Vizag among other locations.”
Ranjit, further, added, "The people in the story might be ordinary individuals, but the audience should be prepared to witness a high-octane retribution saga." Billed as an intense action entertainer with a lot of emotions, Michael also stars Divyansha Kaushik, Gautham Menon, Varalaxmi Sarathkumar, and Varun Sandesh, in important roles. Ranjit clarified Vijay Sethupathi wasn’t playing a cameo in Michael. "His role is crucial to the story and takes the film forward!" Sam CS is composing the music for the project.
Sundeep, who completed 12 years in cinema, has stepped up his fitness regimen and lost weight, getting leaner and fitter. The actor, who was seen latest in Chimbu Devan's hyperlink drama, Kasada Thapara, turned producer in 2019 for the Telugu thriller, Ninu Veedani Needu Nene, directed by Caarthick Raju.
Also, Sundeep Kishan played a prominent role in Amazon Prime's Indian web series, The Family Man. In an interview with Cinema Express, he speaks about how difficult it was to detach from the intense roles. "It’s not so hard for me to come out of these characters as I always do a case study on my role in every film. I take note of every detail of the character and try to relate to it. I don’t enjoy method acting; I like being spontaneous. That way, I can shift out of my characters easily!"
Sundeep adds he finds comedy more enjoyable as he has fun playing such characters. “I enjoy the space of comedy films and I find this genre easy. You have more room to try different things."
In Tamil, he has Karthick Naren's long-delayed Naragasooran, in the pipeline.
