After Jilla, Vijay is donning the lead role in a film directed by A R Murugadoss.
Anirudh is composing the music while George C Williams is handling the camera. The first schedule shooting of this film took place in Kolkata and the second schedule shooting took place in Chennai.
At this juncture, the third schedule shooting of the film will be taking place in Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. The set replicating Rajahmundry prison has been erected at Ramoji Film City.
The sequence where the villain Tota Roy Chowdary will be escaping the prison and Vijay’s action sequences are to be shot here. The shooting of the film will be taking place for 30 days.
Initially it was decided to shoot the sequences in the real prison located in Rajahmundry. Because of the Telangana crisis it has been decided to change the location.
A R Murugadoss who saw the portions of Vijay and Samantha dance sequences shot in Chennai was very highly impressed.
For the first time Samantha was sharing the screen with Vijay in this film. Satish of Ethir Neechal fame is taking care of the comedy tracks.
