The makers of a horror flick have claimed that they completed the shooting of their film in 12 hours, saying it was a first-of-its kind initiative in sixty years of Tamil cinema.
“It was tough to complete the shooting, which began at 6 pm and finished at 6 am the next day,” the film’s director, Puthugai Marisa was quoted as saying in a release. The horror script, involving the adventures of three couples staying at a haunted bungalow enroute to a wedding is titled Nadu Iravu (Midnight). Earlier aTamil multi-starrer Tamil film, titled Suyamvaram, was shot in 24 hours by various technical teams in 1999.
Actor seizes pirated copies of Tamil films
Tamil film actor Vishaal raided a video CD shop near Pollachi and seized CDs of new films, including his Poojai and handed them over to the police. The owner of the video shop was taken into custody for interrogation based on a complaint from the actor. Vishaal, who has been camping in Pollachi for a film shoot, sent two of his assistants as decoy customers to the shop asking for CDs of new films, particularly Tamil films. The shop owner showed them the CDs of Poojai and Katthi, starring another popular actor Vijay, which were released only a week ago. Vishaal, who was waiting outside, rushed in and took the pirated CDS, they said. The actor ‘raided’ a video shop in Tirupur earlier and had seized the pirated CDs of his new movie.
