Chiyaan Vikram's upcoming film 'Cobra' is one of the most anticipated films in Kollywood. The film progress was affected by COVID-19, like any other films.

The film is bankrolled by Lalit Kumar for Seven Screen Studio. It was scheduled to release this year. But, it had to be postponed indefinitely due to the coronavirus outbreak.

During this uncertain time the entire film industry is struggling and asking technicians and actor to do favour by reducing their remuneration.

Recently Vijay Antony and Harish Kalyan have agreed to reduce their salary. Now director of the movie, Ajay Gnanamuthu, volunteered to slash his salary by 40 percent, which is said to be around 1.25 crores. This is a very magnificent gesture indeed and has gained him a lot of respect in Kollywood circles and social media is showering him with positive comments.

The film also has cricketer Irfan Pathan and KGF girl Srinidhi Shetty in pivotal characters. The makers have completed around 80% of the shoot.

Recently, the makers unveiled the Cobra's first single 'Thumbi Thullal' and the song has instantly became a chartbuster. Composed by AR Rahman, the song has clocked in over 3 million views on YouTube. The romantic number is sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Nakul Abhyankar.
