The cast comprising of Vishal, Tamanna and Aishwarya Lekshmi had started shooting for the movie only last week in Turkey. The first schedule had been planned for 50 days in the country.
The movie, produced by Trident Arts, marks the third collaboration between Vishal and Sundar C after Aambala and Madha Gadha Raja.
It was previously reported that Tamannaah would be seen in a negative role in the movie. The actress said her character was someone with physical and mental strength, and it was challenging to prepare for it. “There is a lot of mastery required in mind games, even when you’re playing them on-screen and that’s something that doesn’t come very easily to me. In reality, I’m quite the opposite… so getting into this character will be quite intimidating,” she was quoted as saying by Midday.
Aishwarya Lekshmi, best known for her role as Aparna in Maayanadhi, makes her Tamil debut with the movie. News regarding her Tamil debut emerged as early as September last year. The actress was appreciated for her performance in last year’s Fahadh Faasil starrer Varathan. Argentina Fans Kattoorkkadavu, in which she is paired opposite Kalidas Jayaram is currently playing in theatres.
Meanwhile, Vishal awaits the release of Ayogya on April 19. The movie has been directed by debutant Venkat Mohan, a former assistant of AR Murugadoss.
