A film announcement that skyrocketed the excitement among Sivakarthikeyan fans everywhere was Doctor, which wrapped up production a while back under Kolamaavu Kokila fame Nelson Dilipkumar's direction. Touted to be a dark comedy, Sivakarthikeyan on Wednesday took to social media and dropped a bombshell announcement saying the film will be coming out in theatres worldwide on March 26, 2021, ensuring it will be a summer treat at the theatres, It is to be noted that SK had earlier this week completed dubbing for his portions in Doctor, with its post-production works carrying forward at a rapid pace.

Jointly being produced by Sivakarthikeyan’s SK Productions in association with Kotapadi J Rajesh of KJR Studios and featuring music by 'Rockstar' Anirudh Ravichander, promotions for Doctor were carried out extensively even during the nationwide lockdown, with the makers releasing two songs - 'Chellamma' and 'Nenjame' - both of which have received a tremendous response. With Anirudh's music turning out to be a major bonus for the film, expectations for Doctor shot up, especially after the makers released a motion poster earlier this year, which showed Sivakarthikeyan in an uber cool, sleek and stylish look. 

Doctor will see Telugu film Gang Leader heroine Priyanka Arul Mohan playing the female lead role, with Unnaale Unnaale fame Vinay Rai as the antagonist. Yogi Babu, Milind Soman, Arun Alexander, Sunil Reddy, and Reddin Kingsley are set to be seen in major important roles. The film, which has Kalai Arasu serving as the co-producer, also includes Vijay Karthik Kannan handling the cinematography, followed by R. Nirmal on editing. Among the others forming the technical crew are costume designer Pallavi Singh, art director D.R.K. Kiran, and Anbariv for the stunt choreography. 

Fans will be looking for a ripper of a film with Doctor considering both Sivakarthikeyan and Nelson Dilipkumar have known each other from their days on Vijay TV and share an excellent rapport. Sivakarthikeyan's fans have a lot to expect in the days ahead as they will get to see him in Doctor, including the long-awaited sci-fi film, Ayalan, under R. Ravikumar's direction and featuring Academy Award-winning composer A. R. Rahman's music and the recently-announced Don.
