Arun told Silverscreen India, “We just wrapped the film. It has been a wonderful experience working with Arivazhagan Venkatachalam. He is very confident about the film. The script gives me a different shade as an actor – it is something I have not done before. The film is more of a pan-Indian film and will have a patriotic theme.”
This is Arun and Arivazhagan’s second collaboration, after the 2017 action thriller film Kuttram 23. It will also feature Stefy Patel and Baks Bagavathy.
Arun said he would be playing a RAW agent in the film, which is set in Delhi and has a “racy” screenplay.
“There will be a surprise in the film which I don’t want to reveal. But as an actor, it was challenging for me to portray. You can see it in the film. I had more scope for action in this film and the sequences were risky. But it was all done very carefully,” Arun said.
The film was shot in New Delhi, Agra, and Chennai. The final sequences were shot with the lead pair at a stadium in Delhi. Arun said that the last schedule was tedious as the team had to shoot day and night.
The final title and the first look will be released by the end of January, said Arun.
The film has Shyam as the stunt coordinator of the film, Sam CS as the music composer, and Rajasekar as the cinematographer. It is produced by Vijay Raghavendra under the All in Pictures banner.
According to a press release, the film was supposed to have been released in summer 2020 but suffered a long schedule break due to the pandemic and lockdown. The entire cast and crew were tested for Covid-19.
