This will be the first time that actors Jayam Ravi and Arya will be working together. In fact, this will also be the first time that Shruti Haasan will be seen sharing screen space with either of the actors. Shruti has also been training really hard in physical combat, and sword fighting to prepare for the role in this movie. After the release of the poster, fans also wonder at the extent to which visual effects will be used in the film, and also if it will follow the path of superstar Rajinikanth’s film, Kochadaiiyaan.
