The teaser of Ajith's latest film "Vedalam" or "Vedhalam" was released on the midnight of 8 October.
As the makers had announced well in advance that the teaser would be released at midnight, Ajith's fans were curiously waiting for it to hit the internet.
Sony Music officially released the "Vedalam" teaser on its YouTube page. The teaser gives a glimpse of Ajith's character. The actor looks stylish and vehemently delivers powerful one-liners in the short clip.
The "Vedalam" teaser was supposed to be released on 1 October as a Gandhi Jayanti treat. But, the plans were changed for some reason at the last minute. It was speculated that the makers had postponed the release due to Vijay's "Puli".
It was said that to avoid unnecessary conflicts between the fans of Vijay and Ajith, the makers decided to postpone the release. Nonetheless, the sudden postponing of the release disappointed the fans of Ajith.
However, the fans of Ajith, who are thrilled about the release, have also started a campaign to make the topic a trend on Twitter by using hashtag #VedalamTeaserStromOntheWay.
Ajith and Shruti Haasan starrer "Vedalam" is a family-oriented action drama, penned and directed by Siruthai Siva. This is the first time that Shruti Haasan has shared screen space with Ajith as his leading lady. Lakshmi Menon plays Thala's sister with Kabir Duhan Singh and Rahul Dev playing the villains.
Meanwhile, the audio of "Vedalam" is almost ready and Anirudh Ravichander is expected to deliver the master copy to Sony Music soon. The album is likely to hit the stores on 16 October for the music director's birthday.
Can the video create new records on YouTube?
The teaser and trailers have been creating a massive buzz on YouTube. Recently, Vijay's "Puli" broke the record of Salman Khan's "Kick", becoming the most 'liked' video among all Indian movies. Now, people are curiously looking forward to see whether "Vedalam" teaser can create similar magic or not.
