Not much is known of Aditi’s role as of now but one can expected Indraganti to write better roles for women in his films. Having recently completed her portion for the film, she joined the sets of Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, which also stars Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Arun Vijay, Simbu, Jyothika and Aishwarya Rajesh in the lead.
In December 2017, Ratnam began prepping for the film with his actors. A picture from his acting workshop, featuring Simbu, leaked online. The project also stars senior actors Prakash Raj and Jayasudha, who will be seen playing pivotal roles. To be bankrolled by Madras Talkies, double Oscar-winning music director AR Rahman has been roped in compose the music, while lensman Santosh Sivan, in his sixth collaboration with Ratnam, will crank the camera.
