Taking to Instagram, Jayaram posted a picture of himself with director Mani Ratnam and cinematographer Ravi Varman and wrote, "Years of waiting to act in a Maniratnam film finally comes to an end!

"Ravi Varman, it feels great to see your growth right from your first film with me! You are exceptional! Catch you guys soon in theaters! (sic)," Jayaram added.

The makers have already released the first look posters of Vikram as Aditya Karikalan, Karthi as Vanthiyathevan, Aishwarya Rai Bachchan as queen Nandini, Trisha as princess Kundavai and Jayam Ravi as Raja Raja Cholan from the film that is being made on a lavish scale.

AR Rahman is making the score for the film, while cinematography is handled by Ravi Varman. Mani Ratnam's trusted editor Sreekar Prasad is handling the editing of the film.
