There were reports that Aval fame Milind Rau's Nayanthara-starrer Netrikann might go the OTT way.

Produced by the actress's beau, director Vignesh Shivan, the film has Ajmal, Manikandan and Saran among others playing pivotal roles in it. Sharing the trailer from his social media account, Vignesh said that "If creating thrillers is an art, then our director Milind Rau is a Picasso in it" and added that the film has one of the best performance of Nayanthara till date.

The movie's plot revolves around how she faces the criminal who is hell-bent on finishing her. Ajmal, who was last seen in Nungambakkam, plays the antagonist in the movie.
