A source was quoted as saying, “The makers were keen to cast Rakul in an important role and hence approached the actress in Mumbai. She also heard the script and has agreed in principle. She would be signing on the dotted line soon. It is indeed Rakul’s lucky that she is cast in director Shankar’s film early in her career. She would be playing the love interest of Siddharth who is the grandson of the vigilante Senapathi and son of Chandru, both characters played by Kamal in the original version.”
