The presenters of the film, Fox Star Studios, along with the producers Wunderbar films & Grass Root Film Company are associating with a charitable non-profit organization called Bhumi for the well-being of the child actors Ramesh (12) & Vignesh (14). The Chennai based NGO will be entrusted with a substantial sum of money towards the food, education and additional needs of the 2 child actors. Bhumi will be entrusted with the responsibility of handling the money for the monthly expenses as well as monitoring the progress of the kids till they turn 21. At 21, the entire sum of money will be handed over to the kids for their future needs.
