"When I narrated the script to Karthik, he was instantly impressed, and came forward to produce the film in his own banner. Keerthy will be seen in an intense role, which will be very different from her earlier films. The film will be a female-centric thriller, which will also feature some experienced actors. The casting is currently going on, and an official announcement will be made soon,” he says.

The yet-to-be-titled film, with cinematography by Kharthik Palani and music by Santhosh Narayanan, is expected to go on floors soon. Meanwhile, Keerthy Suresh will next be seen in a cameo role in the Malayalam film Marakkar: Arabikadalinte Simham.
