Talking about the project, director Durai Senthilkumar said in a statement: “I am excited to work with a production studio as reputed as Sathya Jyothi Films. Their distinct way of planning and executing a project has been an inspiration to many. I feel the responsibility of having to deliver a good product, and, hope to achieve it.”
Durai Senthilkumar has collaborated with the National Award-winning Dhanush on Kodi, a political drama in which the actor played dual roles. Trisha was the antagonist in the film, which was also commercially successful.
Some reports say Dhanush will play both father and son in this film. Sneha is one of the female leads, and is expected to be paired with the older Dhanush. If that happens, filmgoers will be seeing this pair on screen, 13 years after Selvaraghavan’s seminal gangster saga Pudhupettai, in which Sneha played a sex worker.
Meanwhile, music for the film will be composed by Mervin and Vivek. Cinematography will be handled by Om Prakash.
