Apart from this post, the video of action directors Anbu and Arivu choreographing the stunts has also been well received by the fans. We get to see the hard work put in by the stunt directors to make the film a success. Anbu and Arivu left no stone unturned to make every sequence a must watch.
Each stunt sequence was rehearsed several times before filming. The arrangement of cables and other arrangements was at best to ensure the safety of the stuntmen. Many people liked the behind the scenes rehearsals in the prison sequence. It was a thrilling experience to see Kamal putting in immense efforts to make his action sequences look realistic on screen.
