Rana also shared a picture of his preparation for the role which showed him getting a hair cut from two stylists. The actor, it appears, will be sporting a new look in the film.
He wrote: “Team Vijay and Jaipal working on one of the looks in the film!! This is WIP!! #1945.”
According to a report in Times of India, Rana plays a soldier of Subhash Chandra Bose’s Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army). The drama unfolds at the height of Indian freedom movement. Playing the female lead is actor Regina, who will appear in the role of a Chettiar girl, engaged to marry Rana’s character.
Speaking about her character, Regina was quoted in Times of India as saying: “I play a simple Chettiar girl. So throughout the film, you’ll see me wearing saree with minimal make-up. I’ve completed shooting a couple of sequences for the film in Chennai and Kochi and it has been fun to say the least. It’s a very nuanced character.”
