‘Action King’ Arjun and Shaam are coming together on-screen for the first time in the Tamil-Kannada bilingual Oru Melliya Kodu which is directed by A.M.R. Ramesh, who has already directed Arjun in Vana Yuddham. The Kannada version has been titled as Game.
Manisha Koirala, who had earlier paired up opposite Arjun in Shankar’s super-duper hit Mudhalvan, returns to Kollywood after a long break by pairing up opposite Shaam in Oru Melliya Kodu. Arjun, who has been doing for more three decades as an ‘action hero’, gets to pair up opposite a 21-year old Kashmiri beauty in Aqsa Bhatt, a model who makes her debut as heroine in Tamil films.
Maestro Ilaiyaraaja scores the music of the film which is edited by K.V. Krishna Reddy. Sethu Sriram is the cinematographer; Radhika and Vittal are dance choreographers. Akshaya Creations is producing the film in a grand manner.
Ramesh informs that the shoot of the film has almost been wrapped up and even the dubbing work is completed. “The background music is being scored now and we would soon complete it too,” he says.
A song sequence remains to be shot in Bangkok after which the film would hit the screens in September, Ramesh adds.
