Industry buzz suggests Vikram will be seen in more than 20 looks in Cobra. The filmmakers had plans to release the movie during summer this year. But, the pandemic spoiled the release plans. The film’s cast and crew were shooting in Russia in March. But, due to the COVID outbreak, they were forced to stop the shoot and fly back home.
According to reports, the filmmakers have plans to recreate certain locations of Russia in Chennai to complete the shoot. The filmmakers are expected to wrap up production by the end of this year.
Besides Vikram and Irfan, the film also stars KS Ravikumar, Srinidhi Shetty, Mrinalini, Kanika, Padmapriya and Babu Antony.
