Putharen says that he is awaiting confirmation from the actors.
"I have already approached Anilji, Anushka, Abhay and Tusshar for the four lead roles in the film. I still haven't heard from them. I would finalise the cast in about a month's time," Alphonse told IANS.
The director, who is basking in the success of his last Tamil-Malayalam directorial venture "Neram", will retain the same technical team for the Hindi project.
