Now the first schedule has been wrapped up, where major portions were shot at Adityaram Studios with huge festival set up being erected there….
Some songs and a breathtaking action sequences have been shot there as well. The first schedule involved retro portions set against the backdrops of 1980, where Nithya Menen plays the pair to Vijay and they look in little elderly get up. Now the next schedule will be kick-starting by middle of next month and this one will involve mind-boggling sequences between Vijay and SJ Suryah.
Initially, Jyotika was supposed to play one of the female lead roles in this film and was later replaced by Nithya Menen.
