But they were 100 percent sure the role is for me,” Irfan said.

The name of the movie is yet to be announced. Though Ajay, in May, revealed its poster which depicted Vikram’s different looks. It is being speculated that the star actor will sport 25 different looks and if the reports turn out to be true, Vikram will create a world record for playing the most number of characters in a movie in the history of cinema.
