Talking about the film at a press meet, music composer Anirudh had said, “Gang Leader is a very special film for us because of the fresh story Vikram has come up with and as we all know, Nani is known for selecting good scripts. After working with him in Jersey, to be a part of Gang Leader is exciting.” He added, “When I watched the film to compose the BGM, I saw a whole new side of him. The film is an outright comedy thriller with all the elements that are perfect for the family audience.”
Talking about Karthikeya making his debut as an antagonist, Nani told Hyderabad Times, “I haven’t watched his films before but when me and Vikram were discussing the role, we knew he would suit it perfectly because of how he looks. But after working with him, I have realised just how good he is at acting too. I saw bits and pieces of his previous films after and I can see how much he has changed. After sawing the final output, I wanted to immediately tell Karthikeya what a good job he has done.”
With ‘Gang Leader’ hitting screens this Friday on September 13, fans remain excited for what’s to come. The latest trailer too has given nothing but high expectations for the film. It remains to be seen how it’ll fare.
