A film that has held the attention of Tamil cinema fans for sometime now is the upcoming Sivakarthikeyan starrer, Doctor, directed by Kolamaavu Kokila fame Nelson Dilipkumar and was initially planned to come out in theatres on March 26. However, those plans suffered a setback as Doctor jointly produced by Sivakarthikeyan Productions in association with Kotapadi J Rajesh of KJR Studios, was announced last week to have been postponed in view of the 2021 Tamil Nadu Legislative Assembly election. That said, KJR Studios on Thursday dropped a new announcement informing fans that they have locked in a new release plan and said that Doctor will be coming out for Ramzan in May. Furthermore, SK's name in the film has been revealed to be as Varun, with the makers telling fans to cast their vote in the forthcoming State elections without fail. 

KJR Studios' official press release is as follows: 

We've got a release date! A bigger & a better one. Get ready to witness Dr. Varun & Co in Doctor on the special occasion of Ramzan - a grand Festival Release. We're going to take this time to sharpen our knives and refill our syringes. In the meantime, we urge you to take the effort to go and vote. Vote responsibly. Let every vote count. 

See you in theatres! 

Thank you, 

This latest announcement from the Doctor team will no doubt come as a big relief for Sivakarthikeyan's fans, who have over the past week on social media, expressed their disappointment over the film's postponement. However, the film now being announced to come out for Ramzan in May will give them plenty of reasons to cheer and celebrate, with all sights now focused on the rest of the promotions, including the Doctor teaser/trailer. The buzz around Doctor has been massive, with the three songs released so far - 'Chellamma', 'Nenjame' and 'So Baby' - receiving an astounding response. Anirudh Ravichander is on a roll and fans are looking forward to the rest of the songs in the Doctor album, which can be expected to be released one by one in the days ahead. 

Doctor is a big film for Sivakarthikeyan as he will be seen on the big screen after more than a year since his Hero in late 2019 came out. The film is also keenly being awaited by fans for director Nelson Dilipkumar as he has been announced to be directing Vijay next in Thalapathy 65 under the Sun Pictures banner. Doctor's cast also includes South Indian sensation and Gang Leader heroine Priyanka Arul Mohan as the female lead, with the supporting cast featuring names like Yogi Babu and Redin Kingsley, with Unnaale Unnaale fame Vinay cast as the villain.
