Sources close to debutant director Gitanjali, wife of film-maker Selvaraghavan, say that the shoot of her first directorial venture titled as Maalai Neraththu Mayakkam has just reached its concluding stage. The film is likely to release in theatres towards end-August or early September.
Produced by Beep Tone Studios, the film also has a ‘Selva’ touch to it as the bespectacled Selvaraghavan has penned the story, screenplay and dialogues of the film. Kola Basker, who has worked as editor in many films made by Selvaraghavan in the past, turns producer with Maalai Neraththu Mayakkam which has newcomers Balakrishnan and Vaamika as the debuting lead pair.
Azhagamperumal, Kalyani Natarajan and Parvathy Nair play prominent roles in the film. Gitanjali is said to be very keen in earning a name for herself in Kollywood with her debut film. Sridhar, who worked as assistant to cinematographer Ramji, makes his debut as cinematographer with this film which is edited by Rupesh, who was earlier assisting Basker during his days as an editor. Amrith is the film’s music director.
Said to be a romantic film, the film’s ‘first-look’ was revealed some time back and was lauded by critics and movie-goers. Vaamika, who is already doing a few Bollywood films, wasn’t available to shoot for the film and hence the delay in the film’s making, it is informed. The final schedule of the film’s shoot has just commenced. The shoot is likely to be wrapped up by the first week of August as two more songs remain to be shot.
