The film, which is expected to release in the first half of 2024, has been generating a lot of buzz among the audience and the media. One of the most speculated aspects of the film is the female lead opposite Vijay. While many names have been doing the rounds, the latest reports suggest that Priyanka Mohan, the rising star of South Indian cinema, has been roped in for the role.
Priyanka Mohan, who made her debut with the Telugu film Gang Leader, has been impressing the viewers with her performances in films like Doctor, Etharkkum Thunindhavan, and I Am Chandu.
