With an ensemble star-cast of 40 leading actors, Nandha Periyasamy is doing a commendable job of proceeding with the shoot at the right momentum. We have now completed 50% of the shooting and the entire team is happy with the visual output as we are editing the completed scenes here itself.”

While shooting few scenes, I was deeply moved and had my eyes moistened indeed. Such was the emotional impact of this film and I am sure, audiences will enjoy this movie in theatres as it celebrates the value of family bonding. I was really happy with the way, the team is appreciating my works. In particular, I was elated to see director Cheran sir appreciate my work. We are shooting the movie with newfangled visual treatment and it will be a delightful experience for the audience in cinema halls.”
