Speaking on her role, Bhagyashree said, “I play a key role in the film and my character brings about a turning point in ‘Thalaivi’s life. Kangana and I have a lot of scenes together, and the entire team loved our on-screen chemistry. It was fun working with her because she is a fantastic artiste, who puts a lot into her performances. It was great to get back to the set after a very long time.”
