The title and first look poster of Jayam Ravi's next, JR 28, with director N Kalyana Krishnan of Bhooloham fame have been unveiled and here are the details about the project. Jayam Ravi's next film has been titled Agilan and the first look gives us a sneak peek of Jayam Ravi's character in the film. The first look carries the tagline that reads, 'King of the Indian Ocean'. The first look is intense and promises to be an exciting action packed entertainer set against the backdrop of the sea. Jayam Ravi gets an interesting makeover with Agilan and he looks great.

Ravi and director N Kalyana Krishnan have worked together in Bhooloham and Agilan will be their second outing together. The shooting of the film is progressing at a brisk pace and the movie is expected to hit the screens in the latter half of this year. Produced by Screen Scene Media Entertainment, the film has music composed by Sam CS. Priya Bhavani Shankar and Karuppan fame Tanya Ravichandran play the female leads in this intense action drama which has Harish Uthaman and Kaappaan fame Chirag Jani in pivotal roles.

Jayam Ravi was last seen in Bhoomi which failed to strike a chord with the audience, opening to mixed reviews. Apart from the newly announced Agilan, Jayam Ravi also has two other films - Mani Ratnam's historical epic, Ponniyin Selvan and an untitled film with director I Ahmed in his upcoming lineup. In Ponniyin Selvan, Ravi will be seen playing the titular character and the film is surely going to have an important place in his filmography. Chiyaan Vikram, Karthi, Trisha, and Aishwarya Rai Bachchan play the other leads in Ponniyin Selvan which is produced by Lyca Productions in association with Madras Talkies.

The other film is with director I Ahmed of Endrendrum Punnagai and Manithan fame and the film has Taapsee playing the female lead. Rumoured to be titled Jana Gana Mana, this movie has MS Bhaskar, Rahman, Dayana Erappa in supporting roles. For now, check out the intense first look poster of Jayam Ravi's Agilan here:
