Vijay Chander. It was told that this movie would be the remake of ‘Temper.’ It was in the evening that the official declaration was made about a remake of ‘Temper’ that Vishal will be in the lead role. Producer of the film was also declared. Madhu and Ganesh were the producers. Ganesh was a co-producer in the original version of Telugu film.
All the things were decided, and shooting of the film was going to start from July 2013. Now people were confused about what will happen to Simbu starrer, whose trailer was recently launched. To this, Rayappan clarified that he would be making a new film in which Simbu will be playing the role of lead hero, and it will be directed by Vijay Chander.
