The first look of forthcoming movie "Mayavan" will be unveiled on Thursday, July 28. The makers have roped in leading actress Hansika Motwani to release the posters of the Tamil flick.

Sundeep Kishan, who plays the role of the hero, announced the news and tweeted, "#Maayavan s 1st look poster will be launched by the lovely @ihansika at 6 pm today :) @Itslavanya @icvkumar. [sic]"

The movie marks the directorial debut of producer CV Kumar, who has produced above 10 successful films in a short span. The movie deals with a serial killer and is said to be a science-fiction, which has Sundeep Kishan and Lavanya Tripathi in the lead roles.

"Mostly because small-budget films need a strong script to hold the audience for two hours. A thriller is generally a safe bet. Mayavan also has commercial aspects, with a small sci-fi slant to it. It isn't dark," CV Kumar told The Hindu while talking about why he opted for a thriller subject.

Bollywood actor Jackie Shroff is doing a pivotal role in the forthcoming movie. Daniel Balaji, Jayaprakash, Bagavathi Perumal, Mime Gopi and others are in the supporting roles.

Nalan Kumaraswamy of "Soodhu Kavvum" and "Kadhalum Kadandhu Pogum" has penned the screenplay for the thriller, which has Ghibran's music, Gopi Amarnath's cinematography and Leo John Paul's editing.

"Mayavan" was launched in February 2016 and the shooting of the film has been completed in July. The film unit is now busy in the post-production stage. The teaser, trailer and audio are expected to be released in the coming weeks.
