“The story written by AC Karunamoorthy and Badri Venkatesh’s narration was very relevant to the kind of package we were looking for. In addition, Rio Raj has become an overnight entertainer of crowds, where his full-fledged hero avatar in Nenjamundu Nermaiyundu… was appreciated by audiences. Although this movie will be an entertainer, it has a unique plot that will keep audiences engaged thoroughly,” said Producer Rajesh Kumar. L Sinthan added, “We are kick-starting the shoot from October 17th. The film’s female lead has a substantial character and we had to go through lots of choices. Finally, we felt that Ramya Nambeesan would do complete justice bringing depth to her role. More than everything else, we are excited about having Yuvan Shankar Raja sir compose music for our film.”
