Vidharth's upcoming film with debut director Manimaran Natarajan has been titled Viper. Backed by R M Rakesh Babu of Greenative Films, the film is a crime thriller with psychological elements. 

Speaking about the narrative of the film, director Manimaran shares, "The titular character, Viper, is a 58-year-old cop who gets a challenging case at the time of his retirement. When he retires, another police officer under him takes up the case. Viper then comes out of retirement to team with his replacement and solve the crime."

On why he chose Vidharth for the role, the director says, "In the film, Vidharth's character suffers injury due to an older case and becomes a desk officer. I chose Vidharth for the role as I wanted a relatable face for the character," says Manimaran.

Speaking about the significance of the title, "The titular character, Viper, is based on the qualities of Russell's Viper snake. The viper snake is known for being quick with its attack. Similarly, the character will also be very quick in his thinking and actions."  

The film also stars Roshini Prakash as an IPS officer. The music for Viper will be composed by Ghibran. While S R Sathish Kumar takes care of the cinematography, Nagooran is handling the editing for the film. 

According to the makers, fifty per cent of the film's shoot has already been completed. Viper has entirely been shot in various parts of Chennai. "We are planning to release the film for Deepavali," Manimaran concluded.
