We took around 5 years of our sweet time working on this epic and I, personally, thank Dulquer Salmaan for being with us throughout this journey. Details regarding the crew, cast and other whereabouts will be announced soon… Here is a "fan-made" poster done by a very talented friend Sani Yas, which I liked very much and felt should get released officially today. Saimaa here it is.”
