While actor Madhavan stars as the titular character, Simran Bagga will be playing his wife in the much-anticipated biopic. Notably, this project marks the reunion of both the actors after 17 years, who together appeared last in Mani Ratnam's Tamil movie Kannathil Muthamittal, which was released in 2002. Moreover, Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan will also be seen in a cameo in this movie.
