While Arya and Sathya will take the lead roles in the movie, the director will also be seen in a crucial role. Mirna Menon and Kruthika Jayakumar will be playing the female leads in the movie. The movieis said to revolve around the ancient Tamil sport of Jallikattu. The movie will have music composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
Director Ameer is best known for having helmed some classic movies such as Mounam Pesiyathey starring Suriya and Trisha, Raam which has Jiiva in the lead, and Paruthiveeran, which saw Karthi make his feature film debut.
