The bilingual film being directed by Gautham Menon commenced its shooting in Chennai from September 5. Ram plays the hero in the Telugu version while Jiiva is the male lead in the Tamil version. The female lead in both the versions is being played by Samantha.
This yet to be titled film is being jointly produced by Gautham Menon under the banner of Photon Kathaas and Bellamkonda Suresh under the banner of Sai Ganesh Productions. The film has music by AR Rahman.
There were reports that Ram was walking out of this project because of differences between him and the producer regarding certain payment issues relating to the film Kandireega. However, things have been sorted out and Ram is part of the project.
