Rumors circulating in the industry suggest that Nelson was invited by Rajinikanth just as the “Beast” team was celebrating the 100th day.
During their discussions, it is believed that Nelson gave a funny one-liner to Rajini. The superstar is said to have liked the one-liner and that’s how the project seems to have come together.
