AR Murugadoss watched the movie at a special screening in Chennai. Later, he shared his opinion with his fans on Twitter. He wrote, “Watched Nanban Vijay has given a rocking performance! Can't wait to get back working with him soon...once the strike ends!"
However, the shooting of AR Murugadoss' next project Thupaki starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal has been halted due to the ongoing strike in the Tamil film industry.
