This will be the second association of the actor with the production house after the recent Pattas (2019) and the first association with the director. When the announcement was made, it was done through “a newspaper article” which revealed basic details of the film.
There was even a paragraph at the bottom which supposedly let out the storyline of the film. It spoke of the death of a journalist Gurumoorthy and his wife in the outskirts of Chennai with the cops suspecting foul play. It added that on hearing the news, the eldest son of the couple remained unperturbed and was determined to follow the footsteps of his father.
