Reports say that the makers of Yaan had earlier planned to rope in a Bollywood face. But they changed their stand and decided to cast an actress, who is popular in South. Hence, they offered the female lead role to Kajal Aggarwal, who is one of the most sought after actresses in South India.
Ravi K Chandran has not narrated the script to Kajal Aggarwal yet, as she is busy filming AR Murugadoss directorial Thuppakki starring Vijay abroad. She is expected to return in the first week of September and the decision will only be announced once the cinematographer-turned-director meet Kajal.
The movie is produced by Elred Kumar and it has Oscar winner Resul Pookutty donning the mantle of sound engineer. Multiple national winners like production designer Sabu Cyril and editor Sreekar Prasad are also part of the movie. It will be simultaneously made in Tamil, Hindi and Telugu.
