The director of the film Vivek, who is currently working on Arun Vijay’s Boxer and Priyamani’s Quotation Gang told DT Next, “When I asked her, she smirked but agreed to do the shot. That photo which was supposedly the first look poster is also the defining moment in the movie, where she is beaten up by goons and asked to bite the pavement. She does it to keep her self respect intact.” Vivek went on to narrate the incident and said, “That showed her dedication to her work. G Venket Ram was the photographer and he leapt in joy saying, ‘We got it!’. We couldn’t resist applaud her for the way she worked to deliver the shot with passion,” Vivek said and added it was technically my first photoshoot as a director.
