What makes the movie interesting is that it has Sonakshi Sinha paired with Rajinikanth for the first time. While the actress plays a village belle, Anushka Shetty is also seen as his other love interest.
About her experience of working on the film, Sonakshi says, "My unit was very warm and treated me so well that it didn't feel like my first Tamil film. I have never played a role like this before."
