The original plan was to shoot southern stud Vikram’s forthcoming film, Thaandavam, directed by Vijay of Madrasapattinam fame, entirely in the US. But now, it seems, they are moving the location to the UK
“Since there are some delays in getting US visas for the cast and crew members of Thaandavam, UTV Motion Pictures – the production company suggested to director Vijay that he should shift the shooting to the UK. So the action sequences for the film will now be shot in and around London,” say sources. The action entertainer, Thaandavam has two heroines — Anushka Shetty and Amy Jackson. The film will be simultaneously made in Tamil and Telugu. The bilingual will also have popular Tollywood actor Jagapathi Babu in a crucial role.
The music for the movie is being composed by G V Prakash Kumar. “I am happy to work with Vikram after Deiva Thirumagal. He is an actor par excellence who is ready to go to any extent to meet the demands of the director. Thaandavam will showcase very Vikram differently,” said Vijay. The Chennai schedule of the shoot will draw to a close today post which the entire crew will head to UK to finish the remaining action sequences. Thaandavam which was originally supposed to release in July will not hit the theatres in September.
