Although Karthi or Rashmika did not respond to the protest or give any statements to the media, the producers have released a statement disapproving the protest against the shooting of the film.
The statement reads, “There is a censor board to ensure what is not to be shown in a movie. Apart from this, the right to decide what to portray in a movie lies with its creators. This is the freedom and protection provided to us by our country’s law. Hence, we strongly condemn any efforts made by any organisation or individual to stifle the freedom of creators. We also condemn activities that identify the lives of our historical and national leaders on the basis of caste and religion thereby bringing disrepute to their lives and our history”.

Earlier, it was rumoured that the film is titled Sultan, but the makers didn’t reveal the title officially. However, Rashmika in her Instagram story has confirmed the title to be Sultan.
