Action King Arjun sure deserves the title every bit. The hard-working actor, who is also a keen technician and has directed many films in the past, is presently producing and directing Jai Hind 2 besides playing the lead role in it opposite Surveen Chawla, who starred opposite him in last year’s Moondru Per Moondru Kaadhal.
Arjun insists that the film is not a sequel to his own Jai Hind which released close to two decades back and did very well at the box-office. Others essaying prominent roles in Jai Hind 2 include Rahul Dev, Charlotte Claire, Ravi Kale, Jahangir, Vinay Prasad, Mayilsamy, Manobala, Shafeeq, Gowri, Brahmanandam, Amjad and Sakthivel. Talks are also on with a few more actors to star in the film.
Venugopal is the film’s cinematographer while V. Harikrishna is the music director. Vairamuthu has penned all the lyrics in the film. Kecha, a popular stuntman from Thailand, has choreographed the stunt sequences in the film. Besides producing and directing the film and playing the hero, Arjun has also penned the film’s story and screenplay.
“We started our shooting schedule from Mysore where we erected a huge prison set. Fight sequences involving myself, Rahul Dev and Ravi Kale were filmed there. The theme of the film is children, who not only a treasure for their parents but also of the country as a whole. And I’m happy to be making such a film especially at this time when crime against women and children is unfortunately on the rise.
“We would now shoot in Chennai and Hyderabad and would later fly to Delhi, London and Thailand for further shooting schedules,” concluded Arjun.
