masala filmmaker Dharani. Vettaikaran is said to be a family entertainer with
all essential ingredients that mass want in a Vijay's film. Vijay is pairing up
with the glamorous Anushka for the first time in Vettaikaran for which the

his debut as a child artist in the film Kalathur Kannamma produced by AVM.

Vijay in front of an Ayyanar temple set. The song tuned by Vijay Antony is a
high energy peppy fast number with lyrics by Kapilan. This is the first time the
actor is doing a movie under the AVM banner. This film is to be released in
