After working mostly in Hindi films and TV shows throughout her 24-year-long career, learning Tamil was a new experience for Mandira. According to a source, she gave her best to get the dialect right. The trailer and promos of the movie show Mandira delivering dialogues in Tamil with ease and that surprised many of her fans.

The source says, “Without understanding the language, Mandira wanted to give her best to the character, so she learned basic words and common phrases that are used in Tamil. She learned from the tutors and it took her two weeks time to learn the language.”

Being directed by Shanmugam Muthusamy, the film is scheduled to release in second half of the year.
