While the Malayalam version of the film has been cleared with a 'U' certificate, the Tamil version has been passed with a U/A certificate. "Here's a lovely surprise. We get a 'U' certificate in Malayalam," Nambiar tweeted on Thursday. Tipped to be an anthology, 'Solo' is a story with a mythical touch. Nambiar had earlier told IANS: "It's a collection of four different stories on earth, water, fire and wind. I can't divulge more about the plot."

He also said 'Solo' is a genuine bilingual. "We have shot every scene twice. Once in Tamil and the second time in Malayalam. It was like shooting two films at the cost and time of making one film," he added. 'Solo' also stars Arthi Venkatesh, Dhansikaa, Dino Morea, Neha Sharma and Sruthi Hariharan. The film is jointly produced by Getaway Films and Abaam Films.
