"The protagonist of my film is a courier boy, who is usually your boy-next-door. Nithiin is mostlly known for playing these suave loverboy roles. He's a very flashy hero with a certain image among his fans and audience. He had to shed that image for the film," Premsai told.
Although he admits it's not easy to imagine Nithiin as a courier boy, that itself became the unique selling point of the film. Premsai also brushed aside rumors that the film is a remake of English thriller Premium Rush.
"I registered my script with the writer's council in 2011. 'Premium Rush' released towards the end of 2012 and by then, we had completed about 60 percent of the shooting. Apart from the fact that the protagonists in both the films are a messenger, which is pure coincidence, nothing else is similar," he clarified.
"It's probably because of the rarity of the protagonist being a messenger in both the films that these allegations have been circulated around," he added.
