A source said, “Murugadoss was impressed by Prateik in 'Baaghi 2' and decided to cast him. He plays the antagonist's son and will feature in important scenes with Rajini. After Mumbai, the team heads to Tamil Nadu for the remaining portions.”
Prateik too confirmed the news saying, “It has been my aspiration to share screen space with a legend like Rajinikanth sir. I can't wait to meet him and observe him on set. I have been appreciated for characters with grey shades and I am investing my 200 per cent in this role because it's an opportunity of a lifetime.”
