The much-awaited film which would star Vijay in the lead and directed by A.R. Murugadoss finally got rolling not with the commencement of the shooting schedule but with the photo-shoot. The photo-shoot was done by ace cinematographer Santosh Sivan, who has also made a name for himself as a film-maker with substance.
Sivan, who has worked in Maniratnam’s films such as ‘Roja’ and superstar Rajinikanth-starrer ‘Thalapathi’, shot for the photo-shoot recently. This would be the first time that Santosh would be working as cinematographer for a film starring Vijay in the lead. Popular Kingfisher model Angela Johnson has reportedly been signed up to play Vijay’s heroine in the film.
The film has been tentatively titled as ‘Maalai Nera Mazhai Thuli’ and might be changed as the film progresses. It’d be a joint production venture and would be produced by Vijay’s father S.A. Chandrasekaran and Ravichandran of Ascar Films, who has just completed producing Vijay’s upcoming film ‘Velayudham’. The film is likely to go to the floors in the fourth week of this month.
After he finishes Murugadoss’ film, Vijay might start work on Seeman’s film, it is said.
