'Vaigai Puyal' Vadivelu announced his comeback to films in September and revealed that he would be joining hands with director Suraaj for a venture under the Lyca Productions banner. The upcoming project, which will be the fourth collaboration for the duo after their Thalai Nagaram (2006), Marudhamalai (2007) and Kaththi Sandai (2016), also includes music by chart-buster composer Santhosh Narayanan, with the venture's title being officially announced on Friday. Lyca Productions took to social media to announce that their film with Vadivelu has been titled as Naai Sekar Returns, while also unveiling the project's first look poster, which has the actor surrounded by dogs in a new mass avatar. 

The title of Naai Sekar Returns is based on the character of the same name portrayed earlier by Vadivelu himself in the 2006 blockbuster, Thalai Nagaram, under Suraaj's direction. The film is Vadivelu's first film in nearly four years after he played a pivotal role in the 'Thalapathy' Vijay's box office blockbuster, Mersal, with expectations for Naai Sekar Returns high after the project was announced last month. Lyca Productions tweeted, "Vandhutanya Vandhutanya!!! Here is the First Look of all time Entertainer #Vaigaipuyal #Vadivelu in #NaaiSekarReturns". Check out the Naai Sekar Returns first look poster below: 

As of now, no other cast members in Naai Sekar Returns have been revealed, with director Suraaj earlier informing that Vadivelu will not be paired opposite anyone. Naai Sekar Returns will include a female lead, but will not be paired opposite Vadivelu, director Suraaj told sometime back. The rest of the cast and crew, including the heroine are expected to be revealed once  production kicks off in the days ahead.
