An industry insider states, "Yogi Babu and Vijay TV fame Ramar will be joining hands to play the leads in a new upcoming movie. This project is to be produced by Sinish Sreedharan, who has earlier directed Balloon." Balloon, starring Jai, Anjali and Janani Iyer in the lead, was Sinish's maiden directorial venture. Yogi Babu played an interesting supporting role in this movie, produced by Auraa Cinemas. However, the project met with a few issues in its release and Sinish called out Jai as the reason behind this. This new movie will mark Sinish's production debut as well.
