The film reportedly deals with Vishal’s search for his father’s missing Param Vir Chakra set in the backdrop of fraudulent practices occurring in the online business. It is touted to be a technological thriller.
Speaking about the artists of the film, Anandan said, “Every character has a backstory and substantial role in the film. When I narrated the story to Vishal, he immediately agreed to do the story while also agreeing to produce it under his home banner. He even told me that I needn’t alter any of the characters written in the story.”
He added, “After a lot of confusion, I decided to rope in Shraddha who is known for taking up unique roles. Regina was also brought on board in the same way.”
The film also stars Robo Shankar, KR Vijaya, Manobala and Srushti Dange in important roles. Chakra will have cinematography by Balasubramaniem, music by Yuvan Shankar Raja, editing done by Shameer Muhammed and S Kannan on art. Anl Arasu will choreograph stunts with Pallavi Singh on costumes. Madhan Karky will pen lyrics for the songs.
The film shot in Chennai and Coimbatore will hit screens on May 1st.
Meanwhile, Vishal also has his directorial debut Thupparivaalan 2 starring himself, whose first look poster was recently unveiled, in the pipeline. Recently, he mired in a spar of letters with director Mysskin over the film. The director had also lashed out against the actor during a recent press interaction in Chennai.
