It will be a deadly combination of hearthrob of youth Arya with the hero of new age films in Tamil cinema Vijay Sethupathy in Purampokku – No Man’s Land is the title. Purampokku is a mass action entertainer with a purpose in the lines of Peranmai from S.P. Jhananathan.”
Reports confirm, the cast and crew of Purampokku will soon head for shoots in locations such as Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and a few other nearby spots.
Although, Jayam Ravi and Jiiva were fixed on for the project previously, it was Vijay Sethupathy‘s steadily expanding fan following which made the director opt in favor for him. Similarly, Arya later accepted the offer as it was certain that Jayam Ravi too had opted out.
Meanwhile, the hunt for a female duo is on. Cinematographer Ekambaram and Editor VT Vijayan have also been roped in for this project which is expected to release by April 2014.
