The Dhruva Natchathiram team was relieved when help came via Turkish Airlines who agreed to fly the crew. The Indian agent Flamingo travel and the Georgian company got together to sort this, according to a statement released by the production house. A major action sequence will be shot in Istanbul. While Vikram had reached the destination on Saturday from India, Menon reached on early Sunday morning. However, the crew was stuck for over 24 hours which disrupted the shoot plans.

Filmmaker Gautham Menon on Sunday revealed that the crew of his upcoming film Dhruva Natchathiram was stranded for over 24 hours at the Turkey border. After shooting a song in Turkey for Achcham Yenbathu Madamaiyada, Menon wanted to return to the country to shoot some important portion in Dhruva Natchathiram. However, the crew was denied entry into the country despite having all the legit papers.

In a Facebook post, Menon wrote: “My film crew, stuck at Turkey border. On the road. More than 24 hours now. Officials not letting us in with equipment in spite of legit papers. Crew traveling from Georgia to Istanbul by road. Carrying camera and costumes. Stuck now! At the border. Unable to meet officials demands. Turkey, we are looking forward to film in your beautiful country. If anybody that matters is reading this, please HELP. Worried for my crew.”

Tipped to be the biggest film in Gautham Menon’s career, the film also stars Aishwarya Rajesh as one of the leading ladies. Actor-filmmaker Parthiepan has been confirmed to play a pivotal role. The makers have kept the identity of the film’s antagonist a secret as they have roped in someone very unusual for the role. Actresses Radikaa Sarath Kumar and Simran play pivotal roles in the film, which has been predominantly shot in the US, apart from Coonoor in Tamil Nadu.
