Venkat and Chaitanya have been part of interesting promo videos which have escalated expectations on the movie. The duo has come up with another video now which revolves around Chaitanya's Tamil pronunciation. It begins with the director checking with his AD if everything has been sorted for the film's Tamil dubbing session.
He becomes surprised when he meets Chaitanya who is excited for dubbing in Tamil. Though he expresses skepticism over the actor's Tamil diction, the latter convinces him by saying that he has been a Chennai boy for almost two decades. Chaitanya is also seen wearing a round neck t shirt which has "Chennaivaasi" printed on it to impress the filmmaker.
After realizing that the actor is hell-bent on lending his own voice for the Tamil version, Venkat goes ahead, but expresses disappointment over his pronunciation of a few words.
After a few arguments, the director loses hope on Chaitanya pulling off the dubbing process. Quite disappointed, he leaves the studio and regrets the decision to make Custody as a bilingual flick. When he starts breaking his head over who should be roped in to dub the voice for Chaitanya in Tamil, his AD enters and gives him a surprise.
