In a press statement, the actor said: It is such a dream come true to have bagged this project in such little time. This year is looking very positive for me and Sanya [Sagar] has been such a great influence on my life professionally and personally. I can’t wait to commence shooting with Rajinikanth sir and Murugadoss sir this week and create some magic.
