Just a few days back the much awaited Vijay– Murugadoss flick was officially christened with the title Thuppakki (Gun in English).Now this new red-hot project has popped up some fresh updates. A birdie from the sets of Thuppaki revealed to us that the movie is no longer being produced by Vijay’s dad SA Chandrasekhar (SAC).
On further inquiry, it was learnt that director AR Murgadoss’s demand for a 12 crore salary came as too much of a fee for SAC. Murgadoss’s rising demand was the lone reason why the producer backed out of the flick. While SAC chose to withdraw his cards, producer Kalaipuli S Thanu stepped in agreeing to cut the cheque for a 12 crore remuneration. As of now, matters seemed to have settled down with AR Murgadoss’s and Kalaipuli S Thanu coming to a mutual consent. The flick stars Vijay and Kajal Agarwal in lead roles with the first schedule kicking off in Thiruchendur, later followed by a 45 day schedule in Mumbai. Thuppakki also has noted cinematographer Santhosh Sivan behind the lenses and composer Harris Jayaraj providing some soulful music.
A 12 crore salary, that’s a handsome amount to be pocketed….hmmm
