Hyderabad, August 28 - Tamil star Chiyaan Vikram is super busy with the promotions of his upcoming action thriller film Cobra
, scheduled to release on August 31 in Tamil and Telugu. After the wide promotional tour across Tamil Nadu, the Cobra team promoted the film in Hyderabad today (August 28).
During the Telugu press meet, Chiyaan Vikram was asked to comment on the ongoing boycott trend of movies, especially Bollywood films on social media. Vikram takes a dig at this boycott trend and answers funnily even though there is no boycott trend running against his movie.
"I know about the boy. I know about the cot. What is this Boycott? I don't know the word. I know nothing except for Cobra", the actor said.
The boycott trend has become a headache for Bollywood movies. The trend picked pace when Aamir Khan's "Laal Singh Chaddha" was released on August 11. Since then, almost every Bollywood film has faced a boycott trend which might have affected the film's overall business.
Talking about "Cobra", the movie is directed by R. Ajay Gnanamuthu and produced by S. S. Lalit Kumar under the banner of Seven Screen Studio. The film features an ensemble cast with Vikram in the title role along with Srinidhi Shetty, cricketer Irfan Pathan (debut), K. S. Ravikumar, and Roshan Mathew, while Anandaraj, Robo Shankar, Miya George, Mirnalini Ravi and Meenakshi Govindarajan in supporting roles.
