The shooting of thriller drama Imaikkaa Nodigal, which marks the Tamil on-screen debut of filmmaker Anurag Kashyap, has been finally wrapped up by the team in Chennai. Directed by Demonte Colony fame Ajay Gnanamuthu, an erstwhile associate of AR Murugadoss, the movie stars Nayanthara in the lead role. Atharvaa Murali and Raashi Khanna play important supporting characters in the film, which has Kashyap as the villain.
Nayanthara, who was shooting in Dubai for a song in Telugu film Jai Simha, returned to Chennai to wrap up the shooting of Imaikkaa Nodigal, which is produced by CJ Jayakumar under the banner Cameo Films. Recently, Vijay Sethupathi shot for an extended cameo in the film, where he is reportedly paired opposite Nayanthara for a crucial portion. Earlier, the team had shot a riveting cycle fight in Bengaluru under the supervision of Hollywood stuntman Leehonyiu.

"When the director shared the idea of this cycle fight, we decided to make it as stunning as possible. With Atharva in the pedal, we knew for sure that this action sequence would be talked about. We decided to rope in the best of technicians to give the fight an international feel and quality, so we brought Hollywood cycle stunt specialist Leehonyiu from Hongkong. He has done a mind-blowing job along with 'Stunt' Siva master. The combination of Atharva-Leehonyiu-'Stunt' Siva-R D Rajasekar and director Ajay Gnanamuthu will give the audience the feel of a Hollywood action film," said producer Jayakumar in a statement earlier.
Deepa Venkat has already finished dubbing for Nayanthara in Imaikkaa Nodigal. Nayan is currently gearing up for the release of Velaikkaran on December 22nd, where she co-stars with Sivakarthikeyan.
