In May, actor Karthi announced that Viruman, his upcoming rural action-drama with director Muthaiah, will be released on August 31 on the occasion of Vaniyagar Chathurthi. However, the actor has now shared a poster of the film with a new release date.

According to the actor’s new post on Twitter, Viruman will be released on August 12. Here’s the poster:

Viruman marks Karthi’s second film with Muthaiah. The two earlier worked together in the 2015 film Komban, which turned out to be a commercial success. The director is known for his rural actioners like Marudhu and Kuttipuli, and the Viruman poster promises a similar entertainer.

The film marks the debut of Aditi, the daughter of ace director Shankar. It also has Prakash Raj, Rajkiran, Saranya Ponvannan and Soori in pivotal roles.

Produced by Karthi’s brother Suriya under the banner 2D Entertainment, Viruman has music by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
