A source in the know tells us, “Prakash Raj was supposed to begin the shoot and had taken the advance, too. Since he is recovering from his shoulder injury, he spoke to Hari on opting out of the project as the team had to wait for a long while. He returned the advance payment as well. And later, the team brought in Samuthirakani on board for the film. He will be playing an important role and is sporting a new look for the film. The actor had joined the team in Palani last week and has been shooting continuously.”
The film’s shoot, we hear, is progressing at a brisk pace. “The team has been vigorously shooting in Chennai, Palani, Karaikudi, Rameswaram, and Thoothukudi. They have about a week’s shoot left in Palani and will move to Rameswaram to film the next leg of the shoot.” This action-drama also stars Priya Bhavani Shankar, Radikaa, Yogi Babu, and Ammu Abhirami in important roles.
