Even as the film is getting ready to hit the screens next week, the cast and crew of 'Kumki' met the media in Chennai on Friday and shared some interesting details.

Speaking on the occasion, director Prabhu Solomon said that the film is not just about an elephant and its caretaker. "There is a beautiful love story and it will be the surprise package," he further confirmed.
