Recently, rumours and speculations were rife that Mohan Raman would be seen playing the role of 'Chinna Pazhuvettaraiyar' and the news was doing rounds on social media. Reacting to the tweets based on the speculation, Mohan Raman said he isn't allowed to talk anything about his role in the film until its release. He tweeted, "As per my contract I cannot talk about the role etc..... So you can keep guessing and you will not get either a yes or a no from me. Ha ha ha. Thank you. Nothing is valid unless it is from Madras Talkies. That will only be official all else is speculation."
