According to the latest update, the film will release at around 12.30 pm in India. Karthik Subbaraj is one among the nine directors, who are part of Navarasa. His portion will feature Gautham Menon and Bobby Simhaa in lead roles.
In a statement, Karthik Subbaraj opened up about working with Gautham Menon and Bobby Simhaa. He said, "I've known Gautham Vasudev Menon sir since my college days and as a filmmaker, I liked him very much. So as an actor, he told very clearly that he was a beginner in acting, and I should feel free to guide him and let him know what he should work on. We only shot for three days and on the last day, it was a lot of pressure because we had to finish up and he was very understanding as he's a great filmmaker and he enjoyed the process. After seeing the rough cut of the film, he said he loved it and that it came out super. He enjoyed it more and we loved working with him. There's a special friendship between Bobby and Gautham sir's characters and it works out really well. The two of them got along well during script reading and they became good friends. They had the most combinations, scene wise and the characters themselves shared an emotional connection. The chemistry between the two of them was really good."
