The makers of Vijay’s upcoming Tamil action-thriller Beast unveiled a poster on new year's eve to announce that the film will hit the screens in April this year.

Sun Pictures took to Twitter to share the poster which features the battered face of the superstar.

Beast marks the maiden collaboration of director Nelson Dilip Kumar and Vijay. Director Nelson rose to fame with his Tamil crime comedy Kolamavu Kokila, which featured Nayanthara in the role of a local drug peddler. His recent release was Tamil dark comedy Doctor, in which Sivakarthikeyan takes on a local human trafficking gang.

Beast features Pooja Hegde opposite Vijay for the first time. The film has music by Anirudh Ravichander.

Recently, when Hegde completed filming her portion for Beast, the makers released a video in which the actress said working on the film felt as easy and fun as being on vacation.

“It’s been great working on Beast because everyone is so lively and it felt like a vacation while we were shooting," she said. "It has been an absolute pleasure to be on the sets, we have loved so much making the film. And I hope you guys will laugh as well.”

Vijay was seen previously on the big screen last year in the action drama Master (2021), in which he played a college professor with a drinking problem. The film, which grossed over Rs200 crore at the box office, saw him join hands with filmmaker Lokesh Kanagaraj for the first time.

Master hit the screens in 2021 for the Pongal festival. It was the first mainstream Tamil release since the pandemic struck in 2020.
