On work front, Vivek was last seen in Kannada movie Commando and Tamil film Vivegam. Currently, the team has acquired the necessary permissions to go forth with the film only a few weeks ago.
Meanwhile, the Accidental Prime Minister has been receiving flak from all quarters. Congress accused the BJP of trying to spoil the image of Rahul and Sonia Gandhi through the movie ahead of the 2019 elections.
