As per the reports in the Hindu, Prabhu was also quoted saying, “We actually wanted him (Ashwin) to play a small cameo in this part but it didn’t materialise as he was busy with his cricketing commitments. If a part three of the film happens in the future, we will surely rope him in. At the moment, I’m just thrilled that the ICC cricketer of the year liked my film”.
