The most exciting part about this announcement is the music will be directed by Anirudh Ravichander. Vijay and Anirudh earlier collaborated for AR Murugadoss’s Kaththi. Both the film and the songs were blockbuster. It will be exciting to see what happens this time.
It has been rumored earlier that Rashmika Mandanna will be the female lead but the makers have denied these rumors. Now there is talk that Kabir Singh fame Kiara Advani will be paired opposite Vijay. Reports say Angamaly Diaries fame Antony Varghese will also be playing an important role in the film. But nothing is confirmed regarding the cast until now.
Sathya N Sooryan, who earlier worked for Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru and currently working of Kaithi will be the director of photography. Philom in Raj is the editor of the film. Audio Rights are bought by Sony Music South.
