Kannan, who relies more on the strength of his scripts than on the glamour of the heroines of his films, is determined to include some sort of novelty in all his films so as to keep the viewers’ interest intact. For ‘Vanthaan…’, Kannan reportedly got permission to shoot at the Taj Palace Hotel in Mumbai which bore the brunt of the terrorists’ attacks more than two years back.
It wasn’t that easy to get the permission to shoot at the hotel but Kannan somehow managed it. “It was a very thrilling and chilling experience for all of us when the Hotel’s crew narrated to us showing the spots where the terrorists had been hiding and the places where they fell to the security men’s bullets,” says Kannan.
Kannan didn’t forget to miss out on Mumbai’s most-famous landmark, the 7-km long sea-bridge where he shot some sequences of the film.
