Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam team heads to Dubai. See pics
After wrapping up their Chennai schedule, the team of Mani Ratnam’s new film, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam, has left for Dubai for their next (and final) schedule.
Filmmaker Mani Ratnam is shooting for his upcoming Tamil multi-starrer Chekka Chivantha Vaanam at breakneck speed. The film was one of the few projects to have resumed shooting in April after the 48-day Kollywood strike.
The film’s latest schedule was wrapped up in Chennai and the team is now off to Dubai for the next and final schedule of the film. Eka Lakhani, the costume designer of the movie, on Tuesday took to Twitter to inform that the team is set for Dubai.
“Team CCV all set for Dubai,” wrote Eka on her Twitter page and shared a picture from what appears to be the airport.
On Tuesday, Arun Vijay also tweeted a picture and wrote: “Off to Dubai. My final schedule for CCV.”
Featuring an ensemble cast of Arvind Swami, Vijay Sethupathi, Aishwarya Rajesh, Jyothika and Aditi Rao Hydari among others, the film will be dubbed and released in Telugu as Nawab. If the industry grapevine is anything to go by, the film features the male protagonists Arvind, Vijay, Simbu and Arun as brothers while Prakash Raj and Jayasudha play their parents.
To be bankrolled by Madras Talkies, double Oscar-winning AR Rahman has been roped in compose the music. Various industry sources have confirmed that the film will be an action-thriller and will be a departure from the filmmaker’s usual style of films. Ratnam has pinned high hopes on this project following the debacle of Kaatru Veliyidai, which sank without a trace at the box-office last year.
