It is noteworthy that Karthik Subbaraj had earlier said in an interview that he tried approaching Robert De Niro and Al Pacino but that went nowhere. The director had confirmed the news of the movie’s production rolling out with a press release on 19 July and had said that this was a script close to his heart.
Yes…. It’s official & Happening…
