The first look poster and title of Vikram Prabhu's forthcoming project have been announced by Lokesh Kanagaraj and Venkat Prabhu from their Twitter pages. Titled Raid, the poster has the actor wielding a blood-soaked sword and bruises on his face. A few goons are spotted lying on the floor and a few lorries are also seen parked in the poster.
It looks like a still from an intense action sequence which takes place in a lorry stand. SK Kanishk, GK and G Manikannan have jointly bankrolled the movie which has been helmed by debutant Karthi.
Muthaiya, who has directed Vikram Prabhu in Pulikkuthi Pandi (streaming on Sun NXT) last year, has penned dialogues for Raid which is slated for a release in September. Sam CS has composed music for the project which has cinematography by Kathiravan and editing by Manimaran.
Veeramani Ganeshan has handled art direction for the movie which has action choreography by K Ganesh. Kalyan, Baba Bhaskar and Santhosh have jointly choreographed dance sequences for the project which is likely to be Vikram Prabhu's first theatrical release in the pandemic era. His previous outing Taanakkaran (streaming on Disney+ Hotstar) and Pulikkuthi Pandi were direct OTT releases.
Vikram plays an important part in Mani Ratnam's magnum opus Ponniyin Selvan which is set for a grand release on September 30. The actor is likely to have two releases in the month, if everything goes well. Jayam Ravi, who plays one of the leads in Ponniyin Selvan, is another actor who will have two releases in September. Agilan, directed by Kalyana Krishna, is expected to be the actor's first release in September.
Vikram Prabhu's next project is Karthik Advait's action film Paayum Oli Nee Enakku; its intriguing teaser was released by makers a month ago.
