Ace film-maker Bala is said to be nearing the completion of the shooting schedule of his upcoming film Tharai Thappattai which stars Sasikumar and Varalakshmi Sarathkumar in the led.
The highlight of the film, as already reported, is that it would have music by Maestro Ilaiyaraaja and would be the 1000th film as music-composer for the record-breaking music director. Chezhian is the cinematographer of the film which is said to be based on the lives of the folk art of Karagattam and artists surviving by this art.
The shoot had to be suspended some time back after Sasikumar suffered a fracture during the shoot of a stunt sequence. Now that Sasikumar has regained his health, the shoot resumed two weeks back and has been proceeding rapidly. Some sequences of the film have been shot in picturesque locales in Andaman and also on the cruise to and from Andaman.
The film’s final schedule of shoot commenced in Thanjavur a few days back and it is likely that the shoot would be completed by mid-September. Bala is so confident of his script that he is also producing the film under his banner ‘B Studios’.
