Jiiva said "After the release of Nanban movie, Shankar sir was busy with the script of his film (Ai) He had already proposed the main role of Vikram and was looking for another lead actor to play the villain role in the movie. Shankar Sir suddenly approached me and offered me to do the antagonist role in the film. But unfortunately i had prior committments at that time and i was unable to accept Shankar sir's offer. Moreover i was personally a bit hesitant to play the villain role has i received mixed response for my previous try Singam Puli. Shankar Sir then opted an actor from Bollywood (Upen Patel) to play the same role."
