Vikram is also the title of Kamal Haasan's 1986 movie, in which he played the eponymous character. Lokesh Kanagaraj described the Vikram teaser as a birthday gift to Kamal Haasan: "Dear Guru... This is our humble gift to you sir. Wishing you a very happy birthday. Please do keep inspiring us always sir."

In the teaser, Kamal Haasan is introduced gradually as a mysterious character who can be seen setting up a table for a gala feast. On one hand, he's preparing meals and on the other, he can be seen hiding ammunition under the table and in shelves. Kamal Haasan's guests can be seen wearing masks as they get ready to savour the meal - as soon as they start the feast, Kamal Haasan switches to a violent avatar. The teaser dramatically ends on a cliff-hanging note with these words: "Once upon a time, there lived a ghost named Vikram."
