@karthicknaren_M watched #MafiaTeaser and it was very good. Looks like Arun Vijay and Prasanna have equal importance in the story. Wonder why Prasanna’s name was not included in the teaser. @arunvijayno1 @Prasanna_actor #Mafia— Kousik Karthikeyan (@kousik23) September 16, 2019

Karthick said that Arun Vijay had no problem in approaching Prasanna for the role. “I have no restrictions like such things mentioned by the fans. That is why we gave equal weightage to both the characters in the teaser.” said Karthick who went on to add that it is because of a technical reason.
“Our music composer gave us a composition and we edited the teaser according to it. If we had room to add Prasanna’s name we would have done it. Otherwise we don’t have any restriction in adding his name” said Karthick Naren who assured that they have mutual respect for each other.
