According to the director, the film is a perfect entertainer with all needy ingredients and the role of the Villain will be the highlight of the film. "Initially, I was hesitated to ask Ramana to do the role. After few thoughts, I requested him to do the baddie role in Thottupaar. As I expected, he didn't accept this offer immediately. But after hearing the script completely, he convinced himself and gave dates without any second thought...", he added.
Remember, young heroes like Prasanna and Sibiraj also jumped in to the area of Villains and did such bad man roles in their forth coming films. Prasanna already got success in such role in Mysskin's last flick Anjathey. According to Ramana, there is no image barriers to him.
