The movie has not even started shooting yet, but has already started making news. Ilayathalapathy Vijay's next film is with director Nesan, which will kick start in May. In the film, Vijay plays a Madurai-based person, and hence some parts of the film will be shot in Madurai, though most of it will be shot in a majestic set in Chennai. The art team of the film has erected a typical Madurai style house set, in Chennai, at a whooping budget of one crore rupees! When quizzed, the director confirms the news. He says "The story is a family entertainer; most part of it has to be shot inside a house, and hence the set."
Malayalam Superstar Mohanlal plays a mentoring role in this film, and it is believed that the interaction between Vijay and Mohanlal in the film, is emotionally charged. Kajal Aggarwal plays the lead lady in the film; Mahat and Soori are in pivotal roles.
