It's now known that Remya Nambeesan has joined the cast of this yet-to-be-titled film.
"I wanted a mature actor who can carry out a strong character who appears throughout the film. Remya fit the bill perfectly and she can also speak the language really well. Her performances speak for themselves. She plays the lead of a software firm," says Badri who is currently in Sikkim scouting for locations.
The film will go on floors Thursday in the Northern suburbs of Chennai. Being a travelogue, it film will be shot in various locations across the country.
