Raghava Lawrence has once again displayed the good side of him. The actor, who is known as a Good Samaritan in the film industry, has gifted title "Bairavaa," which is also spelled as "Bhairavaa," to his friend Vijay.

The title was registered by Raghava Lawrence for one of his forthcoming movies. But the makers of Vijay's forthcoming movie, which was referred to as "Vijay 60" before, wanted this name as it best suits the story and the image of the actor. However, they realised later that it was registered by Lawrence and the title was not available.

But they decided to approach Raghava Lawrence whether he was willing to give away the title for Vijay's next film and the former agreed to give it after initial hesitation.

Raghava Lawrence reportedly said that he decided to give the title for the film as it stars his good friend Vijay. It is a well-known fact that the "Kanchana" actor shares a good friendship with Ilayathalpathy. Hence, it does not come as a surprise to see him giving away the name.

Now, Raghava Lawrence has decided to name his movie "Kaala Bhairava," while Vijay's film has been christened as "Bairavaa." It is not the first time that Lawrence has given away the title for his friends. Earlier, he had gifted "Vedalam" title to Ajith.

Coming to "Bairavaa," the forthcoming movie is written and directed by Bharathan and produced by Vijaya Productions. Keerthy Suresh is playing the female lead in the Tamil flick, which has Aparna Vinod, Jagapathi Babu, Papri Ghosh, Daniel Balaji, Rajendran, Sathish, RK Suresh, Sreeman and others in the cast.

The the first look of the Tamil movie was revealed along with the title on the occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi. "Bairavaa," which has M Sukumar's cinematography, Praveen KL's editing and Santhosh Narayanan's music, will hit the screens on Jan. 14, 2017.
