Speaking about the film, Ranveer told Variety, “I am blessed to have this opportunity to be a part of the spectacular cinematic vision of Shankar sir. He is an exception to the norm, a true disruptor. I had always hoped and dreamed that I would get a chance to collaborate with him. To lead a film like Anniyan is a dream come true for any artist. Vikram sir, one of our country’s finest talents, an artist who I hugely admire, gave a colossal performance in the original, one that can never be matched. I can only hope that my interpretation and rendition of the part also connects with audiences in the same way.”
Anniyan was a psychological thriller film. It was filled with action and drama. The movie starred Vikram in the lead role. Shankar brought forward the topic of multiple personality disorder for the first time in Tamil cinema. The story talks about Ramanujam Iyengar aka Ambi, a consumer protection advocate.
Talking about Ranveer, his film ’83 was all set to be released last summer. However, the pandemic spoiled the set plans. 83 stars Ranveer as former cricketer Kapil Dev during the 1983 cricket World Cup in England. It is directed by Kabir Khan and also stars Deepika Padukone.
