He confirmed by saying, "We are in the process of finalizing the cast crew. The project will go on the floor by mid-March", also when asked why did he chose to drop out of the earlier project Kannan confessed, "Producer Prasad V Potluri wanted a first-copy basis with Santhanam, which was not my cup of tea. I discussed the same with the producer as well as the actor, this is a mutual decision".
The director further said that he will be directing a film titled 'Alangaram' under the (PVP) Prasad V Potluri banner.
