Actor Suriya's fans have shared several tweets in which they've tried to spot him in the trailer. Sharing an image from the trailer, one fan asked if Suriya plays the leader of a gang? Another fan wrote that if audiences would've walked into the theatres without knowing about Suriya's cameo in the film, the experience would've been so much different.
Meanwhile, Kamal has confirmed that he’s collaborating with Malik director Mahesh Narayanan. He said that he has come on board the project as a writer apart from playing the lead role.
