According to a report in The Hindu the film may be based on the book The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo written by Stieg Larsson and will also star Alisha Abdullah, India’s first female national racing champion.
The 27-year-old, who was earlier seen in Irumbu Kuthirai, had said to the daily in 2014 while preparing for a race in Bangkok, “I am practising on simulators, working out at the gym and in between all this shooting for my second Tamil film. It’s with Vijay Antony and is called Saitaan. It’s based on The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.”
This will be Antony's fourth film as an actor after working in films like Naan and Pichaikkaran.
The film is all set for a Diwali release, where it will clash at the box office with other big ticket films like Karthi’s Kashmora and Vishal’s Kaththi Sandai.
