The shooting schedule of choreographer-turned-hero-turned-filmmaker Raghava Lawrence’s upcoming film Kanchana 3 got underway in Chennai over the weekend.
Lawrence has earned a niche for himself as a maker of comic horror thrillers with successful films such as Muni, Kanchana and Kanchana 2. He invariably plays the lead in all his directorial ventures.
Lawrence pens the story, screenplay, dialogues besides directing the film, playing the lead role and choreographing dance sequences. Kanchana 3 brings back his Muni heroine Vedhika to star opposite him after a few years. Besides Vedhika, other two heroines in the film include ‘Bigg Boss’ fame Oviya Helen and the ever-sexy looking Nikita Thukral. Vetri is the film’s cinematographer.
Kovai Sarala, Shreeman and Devadarshini, who regularly feature in Lawrence’s films, play major roles in Kanchana 3 as well. Sun Pictures produces the film on ‘first copy’ basis in a grand manner. Vedhika has tweeted stating that she was happy to have commenced the shoot of Kanchana 3 in Chennai.
