Shooting for the movie has been taking place for the past 20 days in the area. The director says that the movie’s art director Rajkumar has erected a set portraying a hi-tech multi-password protected hideout for the money and jewellery that is safely stashed by the lady of the house, played by Urvashi. She is reprising the character of the late actor Manorama.

Yogi Babu is reprising the role of the late actor Thengai Srinivasan, who appeared as the quirky and fake saamiyar (sage) in the original version. The Kolamaavu Kokila actor mentioned that he decided to take this opportunity up as a challenge to provide a tribute for the late actor.

He will also be seen romancing Priya Anand on screen, which will be their second time after 2013’s Vanakkam Chennai.
