Sun Pictures on Thursday dropped a massive surprise by releasing a new still from their upcoming production venture Beast starring 'Thalapathy' Vijay in the lead role under Nelson Dilipkumar’s direction. Touted to be a mass action entertainer, the new glimpse features Vijay alongside the film's heroine Pooja Hegde, VTV Ganesh, Sunil Reddy, Sathish Krishnan, and Shiva Aravind and seems to be a rather humorous moment. Although Beast is billed to be a high-octane action visual feast with the film's plot reportedly set in the backdrop of a shopping mall, this new still once again seems to confirm the circumstances in the story and it will be interesting to witness how Nelson has weaved the story. Sun Pictures has also been engaging audiences with their latest glimpse by raising the talk about the Beast trailer, which will be coming out on April 2. As a majority of the supporting cast in Beast has been roped in from Nelson's Doctor, we can expect the Vijay-starrer to be a balance between a lot of action and comedy. Check out the new Beast still below:

The countdown is now on for the Beast trailer as fans wait for the first visuals from the film. Nelson Dilipkumar has stated since the production of the film began that it will be appealing to Vijay's fans everywhere as it will showcase him amidst a completely new story backdrop. The Beast trailer announcement, which came out on Wednesday, showed Vijay to be inside a cockpit and there is now talk doing the rounds on social media that he could be playing the role of a pilot in the film. Set to open in theatres worldwide on April 13, pre-release works are in full swing as Udhayanidhi Stalin's Red Giant Movies will be releasing the Vijay-starrer across Tamil Nadu. Beast also marks Vijay's reunion with Anirudh Ravichander after they previously collaborated in box office blockbusters Kaththi (2014) and Master (2021) and the chart-buster composer delivered sensational songs and thumping background scores.
