We had reported that the second schedule of Thalapathy 64 was underway at a private college in New Delhi. However, the recent buzz is that the team couldn’t continue the shooting owing to severe air pollution.
“Initially, we thought we could complete this schedule in 40 days, but it’s not possible. So far, we shot a couple of sequences indoors. The director has to take a call if we need to wait for a few more days or go somewhere and continue the shooting,” says a source.
Thalapathy 64, Lokesh Kanagaraj’s third directorial venture following Maangaram and the recently-released Kaithi, went on floors in the first week of October. Vijay Sethupathi, who plays the principal antagonist, was supposed to join the crew in Delhi in some time.
