Director Nirmal Kumar of Salim fame was supposed to direct a film with Arvind Swamy and Nayanthara’s Kolayuthir Kaalam distributor Mathiyalagan of Etcetra Entertainment agreed to bankroll the project. But on Wednesday, Kalpataru Pictures announced their new film with Sasikumar and it will be directed by Nirmal Kumar.
Following the Kolayuthir Kaalam controversy, Mathiyalagan is said to have lost a lot of business deals as the buyers backed out after knowing that the film wasn’t completed. Vignesh ShivN previously tweeted that Chakri Toleti and all the actors including Nayanthara are no longer involved in the film. Mathiyalagan is also producing Hansika's Maha and Arun Vijay's Boxer.
Nirmal Kumar also directed Sathuranga Vettai 2 with Arvind Swamy and Trisha but the film is yet to hit the screens due to the financial setback of its producer Manobala who failed to settle the promised remuneration to the Roja actor.
