Ilayathalapathy Vijay is quite upbeat about the box-office prospects of his upcoming film titled ‘Velayutham’. Produced by Ravichandran’s Ascar Films, the film brings together for the first time Vijay and director ‘Jayam’ Raja, who had till now been directing only his home productions starring his younger sibling,actor ‘Jayam’ Ravi. The film has Genelia and Hansika Motwani as the two heroines opposite Vijay.
Now the entire team has moved over to Thiruvananthapuram, the capital city of the neighbouring Kerala, where the continuation of climax scenes are being canned. Interestingly, the ‘first part’ of the climax was already shot in and around the Chennai airport in a grand manner with 5,000 artistes and 1,000 vans participating and the portions which are being shot in Thiruvananthapuram are the second part of the gripping climax, it is learnt.
The film’s crew informs us on condition of anonymity that the ‘mighty’ climax sequence would be one of the highlights of the film. The present schedule is expected to last for a fortnight after which only one song remains to be shot, Unit sources say.
Soon after the shooting in Thiruvananthapuram is complete, the team will go abroad to shoot a song sequence. The movie is expected to grace the theatres in August.
Vijay surely surprised us with a twist in the climax in Kaavalan, we wonder what surprises he has for us this time.
