The team of Vijay and Sudeep's forthcoming Tamil movie "Puli" has a surprise for the audience. If buzz in the industry is to be believed, the makers are planning to release the first look of "Puli" in mid-February.

While the exact date has not been revealed yet, the first look will be directly released on the internet and is expected to be out at midnight. It has become a new trend these days to release the teaser and posters at midnight to generate huge hype around the movie.

Meanwhile, the "Puli" team has been keeping itself busy by filming key portions. Recently, the film unit shot a hair-raising action sequence choreographed by Hong Kong based stunt master Nang.
