The report in the portal claimed that a closed source informed them about this update and said, “While the makers have locked the idea, the script is still to be finalised. But the idea was shared with Kartik who liked it and has agreed to take the franchise forward with the story set in a metropolis.”
The report further stated that the name of the director is still not fixed yet. The source further said, “The director will be locked in a few days, following which they will decide on the leading lady and the rest of the cast.
