Tha Tamilvaanan at a press conference confirmed the news and expressed how it is dream come true for him to work with Amitabh Bachchan. He said, “What else can I ask for? This is more than a dream come true for me. To have the country’s most celebrated superstar Amitabh Bachchan sir onboard, it’s no more a pan-Indian film, for his iconic presence on global panorama will bring unparalleled attraction.”
Actor SJ Suryah, who will be playing the lead role in the film, also spoke at the conference and said, “Even before I ventured into showbiz as an assistant director, I craved for this moment to work with him. Now, to see it happening is great, but at the same time, creates nervousness to the core to imagine and see that I am going to share the screen space with him.”
