Directed by "Siruthai" Siva, "Veeram" will reportedly have Ajith appearing in a rural avatar. The film has Tamannah, Santhanam, Vidarth, Ramesh Khanna, Suhail Chandhok and Pradeep Rawat in pivotal roles.

"Veeram" shooting is progressing at a brisk pace and the film's team have begun shooting a song sequence in Chennai from 7 November. Once the shooting is completed, post-production and re-recording work will begin in full swing.

There is lot of expectations on "Veeram" as Ajith is a big star and enjoys a huge fan following among the masses. The actor is teaming up with Siva for the first time, which is also creating a lot of buzz as Siva's debut flick "Siruthai" was a big hit. Moreover, Ajith's latest release "Arrambam" is doing good business at the box office. The film has already been declared a big hit much to the delight of the fans. The success of "Arrambam" has now increased the pressure on "Veeram" team to deliver a hit.

One has to wait a little longer to find out if Ajith will be able to continue his success streak with "Veeram", which is scheduled to release in January 2014. According to reports, the Ajith starrer might hit screens on 10 January, a few days ahead of Pongal (harvest festival). However, an official confirmation on the exact release date is still awaited.

If the film releases during the Pongal holidays, it will be a big treat for cinema lovers as a few more films are gearing up for a big release around the same time. Vijay's "Jilla" is expected to hit the screens during the harvest festival. Moreover, some reports suggest that Kamal Haasan's magnum opus "Vishwaroopam 2" might also make it to theatres at that time.
