After announcing the film earlier this year, Dhanush sent an associate to Mumbai to get in touch with Pankaj, who was shooting for Tarun Mansukhani’s action-thriller Drive back then. “I was asked if I’d want to listen to an interesting cop role in a Rajinikanth film. I told him there was no need to listen to a part for a film with a legend like Rajini sir and signed the contract immediately,” Pankaj reminisces, adding that it is a full-fledged role in which he plays good cop-bad cop to Rajini’s gangster-slumlord. “It’s been a dream shooting with Rajini sir in Mumbai. We wrap up around June 24. I’ll also be travelling to Chennai to film a few sequences with Rajini sir,” he smiles.
