It is said that while Jackie would do the honors for the Telugu version Manoharudu's music launch in Hyderabad, Arnold would release the Tamil version's music in Chennai. The big budget entertainer is produced by Aascar Ravichandran under his Aascar Films banner. The film's music is composed by Oscar winner A. R. Rahman, while young music composer Anirudh has rendered a song for 'Ai' album.
The film has been in the making for almost two years. The Shankar directorial was expected to be a summer release, but it did not materialise. The latest buzz is that the Vikram starrer is eyeing a Diwali release in October.
