Director Susi Ganesan’s much-hyped Vikram starrer Kanthaswamy (Mallana in Telugu) is a frequent news source in both Tamil and Telugu film industries! Today’s special on this super hero film is about its lead actors’ costly costumes.
Hero Vikram, who plays a superhero in Kanthaswamy, has worn specially-made clothes to suit the role’s charisma. His costumes, comprising a dazzling range, from ostentatious royal clothes to everyday formals and casuals, are worth 75 lakhs. Shriya, the film’s heroine, has also gathered a costume array worth 1.25 crores. Besides, Vikram and Shriya have donned Spanish and Italian costumes in so many scenes and songs.
A few words on Kanthaswamy’s jumbo budget! The crew shot the film for a month in Mexico, spending 8 crores and canned a few song and dance sequences in Italy spending 2 crores. An added 3 crores was spent on the extra CG effects for the action adventure. So now, along with its trail of exclusivities, Kanthaswamy also bags the privilege of being a super production made with a jumbo budget of nearly 30 crores.
Meanwhile, the audio release of Kanthaswamy will be held on May 17. It is confirmed that the audio of its Telugu version will hit the stands on May 19. Post-production work is going on at breakneck speed. Kanthaswamy is expected to grace the theatres on June 12.
