"She will be seen as an undercover agent in the film. In this role, she will also get to do some action sequences," a source close to the movie's unit has said.
Vikram, who is playing a dual role in the movie, will be paired opposite the Raja Rani actress for the first time. Being shot in Malaysia, the sci-fi thriller is helmed by Anand Shankar of Arima Nambi fame.
Iru Mugan, which also features Nithya Menon in an important role, has music by Harris Jayaraj. While RD Rajasekhar will handle the cinematography, Buvan Srinivasan is expected to weave magic at the editing table.
The film, which is being bankrolled by Shibu Thameens, who had co-produced Ilayathalapathy Vijay's Puli, is expected to be released by the end of this year. The first look poster of Iru Mugan had aroused curiosity among fans and movie lovers.
