Though Sivakarthikeyan has been selecting all his scripts carefully, his recent films have not performed as well as he must have thought. Except for his rural family drama Namma Veetu Pillai, none of his recent films turned out to be a commercial success at the box office. His upcoming line up looks very promising. He has two big projects both in different stages of production. First to release would be Doctor directed by Nelson Dhilipkumar while the other film will be the long in making alien science fiction entertainer Ayalaan. For the first time ever, Sivakarthikeyan would be playing triple roles in a movie, in Ayalaan. Rakul Preet Singh is playing the female lead in this movie, which is being bankrolled by RD Raja's 24AM Studios and is to be distributed by KJR Studios. 
There are only a couple of schedules left in Ayalaan and since it has a lot of computer graphics work left to be completed by Phantom VFX company, the makers haven’t revealed their release plans as of yet. Today, February 17th being Sivakarthikeyan’s birthday, the Doctor team had unveiled the first look poster earlier in the day and now it is the turn of Ayalaan team. They have released the super classy and intriguing first look now, check it out:
