The film went on floors in March this year and in April, Nelson and Vijay left for Georgia, where the shooting began. After the first schedule ended, filming came to halt due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Shooting will begin for the second schedule after lockdown restrictions are eased by the government.
The film also features Malayalam actress Aparna Das, Shine Tom Chacko and Yogi Babu in key roles. The actress will be making her debut in Tamil with ‘Beast’.
Vijay was last seen alongside Vijay Sethupathi in ‘Master’ which was a huge hit with the audience. He will next be seen in Vamshi Paidipally’s Tamil-Telegu bilingual film.
