- Akshara Haasan, Kajal Aggarwal also feature in the trailer
- Vivek Oberoi occupies considerable amount of screen space
- But Ajith as AK steals the show
The power-packed trailer is actually a collage of high-octane action scenes mostly featuring the superstar (of course, why not?) while the antagonist avoids the limelight in his attempt to devise schemes to destroy AK's reputation. Vivek Oberoi's character is that of the "most-wanted criminal" who draws AK's attention following a series of bomb blasts in the heart of Serbia, where most of the film was shot. "After much contemplation, the makers have finalized Vivek as the antagonist," a source close to the film's unit was quoted by news agency IANS as saying.
Much like the teaser of Ajith's Vivegam, the trailer also features sequences which are reminiscent of Hollywood hits like the Mission Impossible and James Bond movies. The two-and-half minute trailer wraps with a deadly warning from AK: "You will see my rage." Vivek Oberoi, beware.
Directed by Siva, Vivegamwill arrive in theatres on August 24. Vivegam marks Ajith's third collaboration with the director after 2014's Veeram and 2015's Vedhalam.
