‘Podaa Podi’ is seeing much delay in hitting the screens and through the course several stories have aroused of why the film is seeing a delay, while some say its due to a misunderstanding between Simbu and Gemini Film Circuit others say its due to the actor’s other commitments, however, the makers have repeatedly rubbished them all as baseless rumours.
Now, the film’s director, debutant Vignesh Shivan has opened up on why the much expected dance musical is seeing a delay.
‘Podaa Podi is a film that sees Simbu and Varalakshmi in three phases of life. Thus this film of course takes more time to wrap than usual flicks. The film is entirely being shot in London and we require to shoot it only during a particular season as the script demands it’, says Vignesh.
“There’s also a child in the film who needs to be shot during birth and at six months of age. The time the film is taking to be wrapped is calculated and the team has been well aware of it”, he further adds.
He also vouches that this film will be STR’s highest budget so far and will raise STR to superstardom post release.
“Gemini is happy with the way the film is taking shape and they feel STR has carried it on his shoulders. Hollywood cameraman Duncan Telford will ensure amazing visuals of international standards. With three months of shoot in London capturing two seasons in exotic and unexplored locales, the film will be a visual treat”, signs off Vignesh.
