‘Ulaganayagan’ Kamal Haasan is busy with his upcoming film Vishwaroopam which not only stars him in the lead but is also produced and directed by him. After Hey Ram which released more than a decade back, Kamal is donning the cap of director. The added responsibility in case of Vishwaroopam, though, is that he doubles up as the producer.
Andrea Jermaiah, the popular actress who also has sung many hit numbers including Idhuvarai…. from the film Goa, plays a significant role in the film. U.S.-based Pooja Kumar debuts as Kamal Haasan’s heroine in the film. The shooting has started a few months back and to shoot the next schedule of the film’s shoot, Kamal and the entire crew have just left for Jordan soon.
The first schedule of the shoot, which took place in Chennai, saw Kamal wrapping up as many as 40% of the film’s shoot. With the crew all set to film considerable portion of the film in Jordan, Kamal and Co. would become the first-ever Tamil film crew to be shooting in that country. The crew is expected to stay there for around 15-20 days.
As many as 50 members including technicians, artistes and assistants are part of the crew that has just landed up in Jordan. Insiders say that some important sequences besides at least two song sequences would be canned in Jordan before the film returns to Chennai in the first fortnight of December.
Readers might recall that the film was earlier planned to be filmed in Canada and USA. Now that the crew had been denied Canadian visa, they have shifted their place of shoot to Jordan.
