Last seen in the blockbuster film Vedalam, Ajith Kumar has been out of action for almost two years now. Vivegam is perhaps the most expected Tamil film this year, which is being directed by Siruthai Siva. Ahead of the release of the film, Ajith Kumar on Tuesday offered prayers at Lord Sri Venkateswara temple in Tirupati. It must be noted that Ajith visits Tirupati every year before his film’s release. The Billa star also took selfies with fans.

The teaser of Vivegam, which was released in May, received outstanding reception from fans and clocked more than 17 million views. With a strong pre-buzz favouring the film, Vivegam is very likely to have a massive opening at the box office.
According to trade reports, the distribution rights of the film has already been sold for a whopping price, as the theatre owners and distributors are expecting high returns. In fact, Sony Music bagged the audio rights for Rs 2 crore. For Vivegam, Ajith Kumar underwent mind blowing physical transformation and will be seen sporting a six-pack abs.
Considering the unprecedented craze, Vivegam is all set to take the box-office records by storm. Vivegam will see Ajith Kumar as a stylish Interpol officer, while Bollywood actor Vivek Oberoi is the prime antagonist.
Made on a budget of Rs 100 crore, the film also stars Kajal Aggarwal and Akshara Haasan in pivotal roles. Anirudh Ravichander has scored for the film and the song Surviva has become a rage on the internet.
Tipped to be a spy thriller, Vivegam is slated to release in August this year.
