Looks like Vijay will be playing a police officer or a military person, going by the first-look poster, which shows him a with a gun and dealing with smoke grenades, too. In the poster, Thalapathy Vijay can be seen holding a shotgun with a pistol grip and a scope attached.
The star actor is apparently holding a Mossberg 500 Mariner Tactical Shotgun with a pistol grip and a scope. The Mossberg special purpose shotguns provide modern, state-of-the-art design for the most serious and potentially prolonged defense situations. It’s a 12 Gauge, 5 rounds tactical shotgun with an overall length of 38.5 inches and barrel lenght of 18.5 inches.
There are also fans suggesting that the shotgun is a Remington Model 870, which is a pump-action shotgun. Guess we would need an expert to give us all the correct model of the shotgun.
Vijay last played a police officer in his 2016 film ‘Theri’ and an army officer in ‘Thuppaakki’, directed by Atlee and AR Murugadoss, respectively.
Produced by Sun Pictures, ‘Beast’ has music by the young and popular Anirudh. The film also has Malayalam actress Aparna Das in an important role, with Yogi Babu providing comic relief.
