Speaking about the film’s streaming premiere, director Ark Saravanan shared, “A family entertainer, Veeran gives Tamil cinema its first superhero from rural Tamil Nadu, making it a first for Kollywood. With elements of fantasy, action, drama, and comedy, the film also touches upon the fine line between superstition and faith, making it a very intriguing and entertaining watch for audiences of all ages. I am thrilled that even more people can watch and enjoy Veeran when it premieres on Prime Video in India and over 240 countries and territories.”
Actor-musician Hiphop Tamizha Adhi said, “As kids we all dreamed of becoming superheroes, and as an actor, I have longed to play the role of one. When I read the story and script, delving further into the character, I was convinced that Veeran is the superhero I was always meant to play. I cannot wait for my fans and audiences across the globe to watch and enjoy the film, when it premieres on Prime Video.”
Veeran will exclusively stream on Prime Video in India and across 240 countries and territories worldwide on 30 June with dubs in Telugu, Malayalam, and Kannada.
