Filmmaker Selvaraghavan took to Twitter to announce that the shooting of NGK has been completed. “It’s been a fantastic journey with the one and only Suriya sir. Truly amazed by his wonderful talent and dedication,” he wrote. Responding to the tweet, Suriya thanked his director saying, the film gave him a “high both on and off the camera”.
Touted to be a political thriller, the film that has Jagapathi Babu, Bala Singh and Sarathkumar in important roles, revolves around a young leader who wants to bring about a change in the society. Sai Pallavi and Rakul Preet play the female leads in the film. NGK was originally slated to release on last year’s Deepavali alongside Sarkar.
