After directing the superhit film O Kadhal Kanmani, Mani Rathinam had decided to direct a high budgeted film which would have had Mahesh Babu, Nagarjuna and Fahad Fazil in the cast. This did not materialize.
Next he mentioned that he will be directing a film which will have Karthi and Dulquer Salman in the cast. Now he will be directing a film which will have Karthi and Sai Pallavi in the lead roles. The shooting of the film will be taking place in Kashmir.
Moreover it was mentioned that the shooting of the film which will commence during the month of September will be jointly produced by Mani Rathinam and Sri Thenandal Films. Mani Rathinam has refused this and has mentioned that he alone would be producing the film under the banner Madras Talkies.
