Master inspires a theater release for Vishal's NEXT

Chakra starring Vishal and backed by his home banner is the debut work of director MS Anandan. The film will have Vishal playing an army man who is on a mission to hunt down a stolen gallantry medal. The film stars Shraddha Srinath in the female lead role. The team had been running into trouble with allegations from different fronts - plagiarism, a producer trying to stall its OTT dream, etc. Though there were reports of Chakra opting for a direct OTT release, we hear that the team is hopeful of getting good response in theaters after the rousing welcome extended to Pongal releases, especially Master. So it is going to be a direct theater release for CHAKRA.
