Srikanth and Shaam to play leads in Trainers


Actors Srikanth and Shaam will be playing the leads in the upcoming cop thriller titled Trainers. The film directed by Bala's protege Velu Manikkam went on floors in February and is currently in the final stage of shooting.

Shaam shares that the film is an ego battle between two cops with contrasting ideologies.

"I play a rugged, alcoholic cop, who doesn't play by the rules and believes in violence. Srikanth's character, on the flip side, follows the rules and investigates using the canine units and forensic methods. We investigate the same case and race against each other to finish it."

Apart from this film, Shaam will be producing his next film directed by debutant Bharath, an erstwhile assistant of SP Jananathan.
