The film was earlier scheduled to release on Diwali, but the film’s production house announced the postponement. The film’s director, Selvaraghavan’s health was cited as one of the reason behind the delay. He had tweeted about a simple medical procedure he underwent and said that he would resume work in a couple of days. A source close to the director also said, “There are many scenes that are left to be canned. It is not possible to do all that in a couple of months.”
Pitched as a political thriller, NGK or Nandha Gopalan Kumaran will see Suriya playing the title character. Produced by S. R. Prabhu under the banner Dream Warrior Pictures, the film also stars Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet Singh. While Bala Singh, Mansoor Ali Khan, Murali Sharma, Sampath Raj, Sarath Kumar and Jagapathi Babu play pivotal roles. The film marks the first collaboration of the director-actor duo. The music for the film is composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
