According to a statement, this untitled film will be directed by Hanu Raghavapudi and presented by Vyjayanthi Movies.

The makers have launched a concept poster, one depicts a telegram. In the poster, Dulquer is seen as an army man in a silhouette image. The film will have music by Vishal Chandrashekar. Produced by Priyanka Dutt under Swapna Cinemas, it will be presented by Vyjayanthi Movies.

Dulquer Salmaan and the presenters of the film have teamed up earlier for the biopic hit ‘Mahanati/ Nadigaiyer Thilagam’, which won several national awards. Dulquer was last seen in ‘Kannum Kannum Kollaiyadithaal’, which released in theatres in February this year.
