In the poster, Irfan Pathan is dressed in a black suit and looks stylish. He will be seen playing the role of French Interpol officer Aslan Yilmaz in Cobra.
Back in March, the team of Cobra headed to Russia to shoot some important sequences. However, they were forced to return to India due to the travel ban imposed by the government to curb the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Director Ajay Gnanamuthu had earlier said that the rest of the portions had to be shot in Russia. It is unclear if the team would erect a set resembling Russia in Chennai to complete the shoot.
According to reports, Vikram will be seen in more than 20 looks in Cobra. The shooting of Cobra is expected to be wrapped up by the end of the year. Apart from Vikram and Irfan, Cobra stars KS Ravikumar, Srinidhi Shetty, Mrinalini, Kanika, Padmapriya and Babu Antony.
