The ongoing strikes between FEFSI and Producers’s council have thrown a spanner in the shoots for many. However director AR Murugudass and his hero Vijay seem to be unperturbed with the way things have turned out. While their flick Thuppaki is waiting to resume its second schedule, both the director and the actor have decided to invest their time sensibly.
Murugadoss decided to shoot a 10 minute teenage love story in the short film format, getting some free time. He got inspired one day walking back home, seeing a school boy and a girl talking at a nearby street. Vijay on the other hand is making the gym rounds. It is learnt that he will be playing an encounter specialist from Mumbai, for his next release Thuppaki. The actor wants to look lean and mean playing an agile Mumbai cop, who is on a mission to give the bad boys a run for their lives. As part of the first schedule, the actor shot a hilarious scene where he arrives to see his girl during duty timings, in order to fix an alliance. He is welcomed by the girls family still dressed in his Khaki pants. Actress Kajal Aggarwal who serves our Khaki cloaked guy sweets and coffee, looses all control, ending up laughing to her heart’s content during the shoots.
The second schedule for Thuppaki will resume in Mumbai, as soon as the strikes are called off peacefully.
