An article in a Tamil daily says that Aishwarya Rajesh has been roped in to play an important role in the film. She, however, will not star opposite GVP, but will be playing his sister. There has been no confirmation about the role from the makers or the actress.
The music for the movie will be composed by 96-fame Govind Vasantha.
According to a source: “The film has its dialogues co-written by Mani Ratnam and will go on floors soon. The story was originally planned to be a Mani Ratnam directorial.
