The film will feature Vijay in an out-and-out action-packed character. It will also be high on action. Details about Ananya's role have been kept under wraps.
Speaking about his role in the film, Vijay earlier told news agency PTI, "I've started shooting for my first pan-Indian film with Puri Jagannadh... It's a project that required me to undergo drastic physical transformation and I've been working non-stop to pull off the character. I play a fighter and the role required me to learn mixed martial arts."
The project marks the first collaboration of Vijay Deverakonda and Puri Jagannadh, who is best-known for films such as Mahesh Babu-starrer 'Pokkiri' and Amitabh Bachchan-fronted 'Bbudadh... Hoga Terra Baap'.
