Vidya Balan was to play the title role in this film, to be directed by Kamal. However, reports have been doing the rounds of the actress backing out of the project.

An agent of the actress said, “The film’s dates have been pushed around a little owing to the film strike, but otherwise everything is going as planned. Vidya is very much part of the film, and she doesn’t have any political allegiances.”
