Meanwhile, cinematographer Ravi Varman, who has worked in films like Dasavatharam, Vettaiyaadu Vilaiyaadu, Villu and Bollywood films such as "Barfi" and "Goliyo Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela", has joined the team.
This project will mark Varman's first collaboration with Ratnam. It is said that Mani Ratnam has always loved the work with Ravi Varman and decided that now is the right time to associate because his friend PC Sreeram was already committed to Sivakarthikeyan’s upcoming project with director Bhagyaraj Kannan, a former assistant of Atlee.
