The upcoming Kollywood film Mark Antony stars Vishal and SJ Suryah in dual roles. Directed by Adhik Ravichandran, the movie is set to hit cinemas on September 15, 2023 in Tamil and Telugu. Ahead of its release, the Telugu pre-release event took place in Hyderabad last night.
During the event, actor Vishal expressed his gratitude, saying, “Nithiin is like a brother to me, and I share a strong bond with Rana and Nithiin. Nithiin is a dear friend, and his successful journey brings me joy. I’m thrilled that he’s part of this event.
On this very day, exactly 19 years ago, my debut movie ‘Prema Chadarangam’ was released. I’m not an actor who believes that the audience’s money should only benefit me and the producers. I believe that everyone should reap the benefits of their investment. ‘Mark Antony’ stands as the highest-budget film in my career. When the movie was announced with producer Vinod, many warned me to opt out. But the reasons behind my decision to act in it will be revealed after the movie hits the screens.
SJ Suryah garu has dedicated 22 hours to dubbing for this movie. Through this project, I’ve gained not just a film but brothers in the form of Suryah and Sunil. It has been an absolute pleasure working with this wonderful team. I extend my thanks to Venu garu and others for releasing this movie in Telugu. I can assure you that ‘Mark Antony’ will provide great entertainment, and every penny you invest in it will be entirely worthwhile.”
The film also features Ritu Varma as the female lead and is produced under the Mini Studio banner. Sunil, Selvaraghavan, Abhinaya, Kingsley, and Y.G. Mahendran played significant roles, with GV Prakash Kumar as the music director.
