Sivakarthikeyan's SK21 is now titled Amaran

The much-awaited title teaser of Sivakarthikeyan's upcoming film with director Rajkumar Periasamy is out. Previously tentatively titled SK21, the film has now been titled Amaran where the actor will be playing the role of an army officer named V Mukund. 

The almost one-and-a-half-minute-long teaser opens with an unknown terrorist killing a person while giving a warning to future freedom fighters. Sivakarthikeyan (Mukund) is posted in Kashmir and leads a team of officers who are in an anti-terrorism operation. He tells his group to bravely reveal their faces during the operation. We also understand that their battalion is called Rashtriya Rifles. Amaran promises to be an intense action-drama film which is heavy on emotions.

Amaran will be a biopic where Sivakarthikeyan will essay the role of real-life officer Major Mukund Varadarajan who was a commissioned officer in the Indian Army's Rajput Regiment. He was posthumously awarded the Ashok Chakra for his actions during a counterterrorism operation while on deputation to the 44th Rashtriya Rifles battalion in Jammu and Kashmir.

Sai Pallavi is playing the female lead in the film. Costume designer Amritha Ram, action director Stefan Richter and editor Kalaivanan R are also on board. The film's music will be composed by GV Prakash.  

Interestingly, the film shares the title with the 1992 Karthik-starrer of the same name. 

Apart from RKFI, Sony Pictures International Productions is co-producing the film. OTT giant Netflix recently announced that they have bagged the post-theatrical rights for the film.

Meanwhile, Sivakarthikeyan was last seen in Ayalaan, which was released ahead of the Pongal festival. The film, directed by Ravikumar, also starred Yogi Babu, Karunakaran, Isha Kopikkar and Rakul Preet Singh in prominent roles.

Up next he has the untitled SK23 with director AR Murugadoss in the pipeline. The director recently revealed that actor Rukmini Vasanth, known for her roles in Sapta Sagaradaache Ello films, will play the female lead. It will have music by Anirudh Ravichander, editing by Sreekar Prasad and stunt choreography by Dhilip Subbarayan.
