Ask Thiagarajan the reason behind the decision, and the director, who last helmed Mambattiyan in 2011, says, “There’s no reason. Fredrick was supposed to direct it. Now, I’m directing.”
He has plans to finish the film in 35 days. “We are shooting in Chennai now, and will travel to Pondycherry and London as well. We have not planned any schedule breaks as of now. We will shoot till we have artistes’ availability. Most of the portions are with Prashanth. Simran has also joined the shoot, so has Poovaiyar. We are yet to lock in the actress to play Radhika Apte’s role in the film,” he informs.
