The film is directed by Kannan, a former associate of Mani Ratnam. He recently shot for almost 22 days in Mumbai's sensitive areas like the Gateway of India and Taj Hotel.
"We were refused permission initially, as security was high in these areas where the terror attack of 2008 happened," said Kannan. "But my script was conceived four years back, even before the incident, and I went out of my way to convince them."
"We were given permission on the condition that we would not film action scenes involving guns and violent scenes, and every member should have an identity card and address proof. Security checks were carried out on all the unit members every day," said Kannan.
