While the filmmaker didn’t reveal that it was a call from Rajinikanth, fans were quick to conclude it was indeed the veteran star.
Following Desingh’s tweet, the phone conversation between the filmmaker and Rajinikanth got leaked on Twitter.
During the conversation, Rajinikanth apologized for watching the film so late. He also said that he was totally taken aback by the movie. He said Desingh has a bright future in the industry.
In another tweet, Design said that it was very unfortunate the phone call got leaked. “Personally not happy that the conversation got leaked as it is a very personal call. Even in my tweet, I didn’t mention Thalaivar’s name but unfortunately it happened,” he said.
The film features Dulquer Salmaan and Rakshan as a duo who con people for a living. When they get conned by two women – played by Ritu Varma and Niranjani – they vow to take revenge. The film also stars filmmaker Gautham Vasudev Menon in a cameo.
The film, which was distributed by Viacom 18 Studios, was dubbed and released in Telugu as well. It did exceptionally well in Telugu too.
