The megastar of Tamil Cinema, Ajith Kumar is gearing up for his upcoming release Thunivu. Billed as high-octane action adventure, the film was earlier (tentatively) titled as AK 61, as it is the 61st film of the superstar’s career.
His previous film to hit big screens, is Valimai, which turned out to be a profitable venture despite mixed reviews. The upcoming film has been shot in different parts of Hyderabad and Chennai.
Thunivu Star Cast
Along with Ajith Kumar, who is playing the male lead in this much-hyped action entertainer, the film stars Malayalam actress Manju Warrier in the female lead role. Thunivu marks the second Tamil film of the actress’s career after the Dhanush led Asuran (2019). Reportedly, the film also stars Veera, Samuthirakani, GM Sundar, John Kokken and Ajay in crucial roles.
Thunivu First & 2nd Look Out
On Wednesday, 21st September, the makers of the film revealed the title of the film as Thuniuv and along with it, also dropped its first look. The poster features Ajith in a new avatar, filled with swagger sitting on a chair and holding a gun in his hand.
Not only that, in the poster we see the superstar sporting gray hairs and beard, which gives a dashing look. The intriguing poster promises a never seen before visual treat to his fans. We can also see the tagline “No Guts No Glory” in the poster.
