He said, “We are big fans of ARR sir's music. Ajay, too, is a huge fan of Rahman. When the discussion regarding music came about, all of us unanimously said Rahman's name. But we were hesitant to approach him as he's become very choosy about his projects. Also, he's always collaborated with big names and we are a young team. We gave it a try anyway and got an opportunity to meet him. He was very warm and down-to-earth. He really liked the script and took a week's time to get back. Eventually, he okayed the project. Being the third film for Ajay and second film for our production, we are only happy that someone like ARR has agreed to come on board. ARR will begin work on the project from the coming week.”

While the rest of the cast of the film is yet to finalised, AR Rahman and Vikram’s name have been locked in. The producer also revealed that the shoot of the film will begin in the first week of September. The locations for the shoot have been finalised and will include parts of Mumbai, Kerala, Chennai and Europe. The film is slated to release in 2020.
