Earlier this morning (February 11), Sivakarthikeyan’s Don went on floors with a formal pooja. The pooja happened at Coimbatore where the first schedule is set to take place. The pictures from the pooja event are now doing rounds on social media and the fans are highly excited about this new film. The shooting will begin from today at KPR College in Coimbatore and this first schedule is expected to happen for the next few weeks. Majority of the cast have already landed at the location and they were seen in the pooja event pictures. Don is directed by debutant Cibi Chakaravarthi, a former associate of director Atlee and it has music scored by rockstar Anirudh Ravichander.

The film is bankrolled by Subaskaran’s Lyca Productions, in association with Sivakarthikeyan’s SK Productions and the movie has been planned to be shot on a grand scale. Don features Gang Leader and Doctor fame Priyanka Arul Mohan as the female lead and this film marks her second outing with Sivakarthikeyan. SJ Surya has been roped in to play a very important role and it is rumoured that the film deals with the cat and mouse game between him and SK. If that is the cast, it is going to be quite interesting to see them together. Samuthirakani, Soori, Bala Saravanan, Munishkanth Ramadoss, RJ Vijay, and others are also a part of the star cast.

Super Singer and Cook with Comali sensation Sivaangi has also been signed to play an interesting role and it marks the young talent’s debut as an actor in Tamil cinema. On the technical side, Don will have cinematography by KM Bhaskaran of Vallinam and Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal fame, while the editing will be handled by Nagooran. Don is touted to be a fun-filled comedy entertainer that is catered to all kinds of audiences. The film is planned to be released in the second half of this year and further details are awaited. Sivakarthikeyan, for the first time in his career, would be seen playing the role of a college student and the film buffs are eagerly looking forward to witnessing his makeover.

The announcement promo video had created good expectations among the audience. Sivakarthikeyan had recently completed the shooting of his film, Doctor which is scheduled to release in theatres on March 26. SK also has Ayalaan which is an ambitious film, helmed by director Ravikumar of Indru Netru Naalai fame.
