The trailer of Chiyaan Vikram's Cobra is out. In the film, Vikram plays the role of a mathematician. In the over two-and-a-half-minute long trailer, Vikram is seen sporting many avatars. The trailer also features KGF fame Srinidhi Shetty, cricketer Irfan Pathan, KS Ravikumar, Roshan Mathew, and Robo Shankar among others. Chiyaan Vikram is seen in both romantic and fierce looks in the Cobra trailer. His obsession with changing many avatars reminds us of Kamal Haasan's Dashavatar, however, Vikram's intentions remain unclear as he is a mathematician in the film.
Check out the trailer:
Cobra, written and directed by Ajay Gnanamuthu, has music by AR Rahman. The film also marks the debut of cricketer Irfan Pathan as an actor, while it will be the first Tamil film for Srinidhi Shetty.
