Cobra is Chiyaan Vikram’s next which is directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu of Demonte Colony and Imaikkaa Nodigal fame. Produced by Lalit Kumar’s 7 Screen Studios, Cobra will feature Chiyaan Vikram in multiple avatars and it is indeed going to be a treat for the fans. This film is expected to showcase a new dimension of Vikram and the fans have pinned high hopes on this film. Interestingly, Cobra features former Indian cricketer Irfan Pathan in an important role and it marks his acting debut. According to reports, Irfan plays a role with negative shades and it is going to be interesting to see the actor inside him for the first time.

Irfan Pathan celebrates his birthday today (October 27) and marking the special occasion, the makers have released his character look poster from Cobra. The poster looks neat and gives us a glimpse of Irfan’s look and character. Irfan plays the role of a French Interpol Officer and his character is called Aslan Yilmaz. He looks super classy and stylish and the grey shaded poster is suggestive of his character in the film. Sharing the poster, director Ajay Gnanamuthu wrote, “Wish you many more happy returns of the day dear @IrfanPathan sir Super happy to have met and worked with such a warm and a caring person like you.. Wishing you only the besttt in the year ahead #Cobra SnakeSnake #HBDIrfanpathan #AslanYilmaz”.

Cobra features KGF fame Srinidhi Shetty as the female lead. The supporting cast includes Miya George, Roshan Matthew, Anandaraj, KS Ravikumar, Mirnalini Ravi, and others. The film has music scored by the legendary AR Rahman who has already delivered a chartbuster single in the form of 'Thumbi Thullal'. This romantic celebration number is a huge hit among the fans and has found a place in the playlists of music lovers. Rahman's music is going to play a crucial role in the film. On the technical side, Cobra has cinematography by debutant Harish Kannan, editing by Bhuvan Srinivasan and stunt choreography by Dhilip Subbarayan.

The film's post production (dubbing) works began last night in Chennai for the portions that have been shot so far. A few more scenes are left to be filmed and it would be completed very soon.
