In the film, reports are saying that lead actor, Vikram will be seen in more than 20 looks. Initially, it was planned for a release this summer, only for the pandemic to make this plan obsolete.
The cast and crew of the film were shooting the film in Russia in March when the pandemic came and forced the makers to stop the film’s shoot. Now the makers have planned to recreate certain Russian locations in Chennai for ensuring completion of the film’s shoot. The production of the film will be over this year.
