This is probably the first occasion where Katrina has moved out of comfort zone challenging her acting skills instead of relying on glamour glitz.

On the other hand, Vijay Sethupathi starrer movies have hardly any space for actresses. The movie solely sails on the robust shoulders of Sethupathy and gripping screenplay.

Also, Raghavan is a thinking director and will only cast the actor if he fits the character requirements. Sethupathy will always be the first choice for thriller and suspense films, but if Raghavan has casted Katrina there will be something meaty and challenging for her.

Vijay-Katrina Starrer Merry Christmas : Katrina Kaif “New Avatar”

Katrina Kaif has featured in almost every genre of movies, but is always used as eye candy throughout her 20 year long illustrious career. Few exceptions like Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara, Phantom, New York, etc. established her as an actress, but no director has fully harnessed Katrina’s potential as an actress.

She is often criticised for her acting skills and poor hindi accent. Maybe this is the cusp in her career, where she unlocks her hidden acting prowess. Sriram Raghvan is an intuitive director and brings the best out of every actor.

Talking about work, Raghavan has already started working on other project “Ikkis” featuring Agastya Nanda, Jaideep Ahlawat and Dharmendra in the lead roles.
