    Talking about Nag Ashwin, the actor said that he is a man of few words but has a great idea and he knows how to present it. "I don't underestimate these ordinary-looking guys. They have a depth to them that does not show unless you talk to them. Great ideas translate better when you present them in the right way and Nagi knew how to do it."
    He added, " I always wanted to play a bad man because the bad man gets to do all the good things and have fun. Where the heroes are singing romantic songs and waiting for the heroine, he (bad guy) can just go ahead and do what he wants. I thought I was going to play the bad man so it's going to be fun. But then, he (Ashwin) wanted it to be different. I'm almost like a sage in the film with a bad idea."
    Actors Vijay Deverakonda, Dulquer Salmaan and Mrunal Thakur have cameos in the film.
