“It’s exhilarating to be in Mani sir’s film. I will be meeting him today. I am super excited. I am also excited to work with Karthi. I spoke a lot with Balaji yesterday, he’s such a gentleman. It’s a fantastic team. I cannot much talk about my character at this stage. All that I can say is I play this girl who’s extremely full of life and with no inhibitions.”
