The shooting of Vijay’s next ‘Thupaki’, which came to a halt following a war of words between the Tamil Film Producers Council (TFPC) and Film Employees Federation of South India (FEFSI), is set to get a re-start.
“Shootings of many films, including Thupaki, faced a hurdle due to the tussle. Now that the issue is expected to be settled thanks to the intervention of government, work on movies would commence soon. It has been planned to re-start Thupaki on February 20,” sources say.
Produced by Kalaipuli S Thanu, ‘Thupaki’ is being directed by AR Murugadoss. Some important portions of the movie were being shot in Mumbai, when the wage row between the producers and workers hit a new low and the shooting was disrupted.
Kajal Aggarwal is playing Vijay’s love interest in this action-adventure. “From February 20, the shooting will commence again in Mumbai. After the schedule, the cast and crew will leave for foreign locations,” add sources.
