Villagers vacate their lands for Aaravadu Vanam shooting

aaravadu vanam

Aaravadu Vanam is a film that is based on a real life incident where an entire set of villagers vacated their lands for a couple in love. Director Bhuvanesh had sought permission to shoot in the village where the incident had occurred but was denied permission.

Unperturbed, Bhuvanesh zeroed in on Singaram Paalayam where the villagers agreed to vacate their lands after much persuasion, for five days. The villagers were taken care of by AV’s producer Thyagarajan.

This is probably the first time where an entire village has been vacated to shoot a film. The film has Bhooshan and Vidya in lead roles.

Apart from wielding the megaphone, Bhuvanesh is also in charge of the story, screenplay and dialogues
