This time, they are part of a romantic comedy that is directed by Janakiraman, who worked as an associate in Irudhi Suttru.
Talking about the film, Kaali Venkat says, “The film is about the romance of three couples, each one coming from a different backdrop, and how they are interlinked with one another.”
He adds: “I play a villager while Kalaiyarasan is a guy who comes from small town. Varma Ramasamy, the hero of Agathinai, plays the third lead.”
