According to sources, actor Vikram will be seen in more than 20 different looks in Cobra. The filmmakers had originally planned to release the movie during summer this year, but couldn't do so due to the pandemic. The film’s cast and crew who were shooting in Russia in March were forced to stop the shoot and fly back home, thanks to coronavirus.
The filmmakers are expected to wrap up production by the end of this year. Besides Vikram and Irfan, the film also stars KS Ravikumar, Srinidhi Shetty, Mrinalini, Kanika, Padmapriya and Babu Antony.
