Viswasam (lit. Loyalty) is an upcoming 2019 Indian Tamil-language action film written and directed by Siva. The film features Ajith Kumar in lead role with Nayanthara playing the female lead. Produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, the film was officially announced on November 20, 2017 and principal photography began in May 2018. The film is scheduled to release on Pongal 2019. The first look of the film was released on 23 August 2018.



The collaboration between Sathya Jyothi Films director Siva and Ajith Kumar was announced via the studio's official Twitter handle in late November 2017, after months of speculation on Ajith's next project. Nayanthara was announced as the lead actress in early February 2018.[1]

Principal photography was supposed to begin on 23 March 2018,[2] but was severely delayed due to the Tamil Film Producers Council's strike.[3] It eventually began on 7 May at Hyderabad.[4]

In June 2018, comedian Vivek was also later added to the cast to play a supporting role in the film.[5]


Viswasam is scheduled to be released in 26th January 2019 to coincide with Pongal.[6]
