He had written ” I don’t want one of the finest actors in Tamil cinema to face any kind of trouble due to me, hence I request him to drop out of the project. There shouldn’t be any hurdle for Vijay Sethupathi in the future because of this film.” Vijay Sethupathi had replied with a cryptic post that read, “Nanri, Vanakkam’.”
