Gautham Menon’s highly anticipated Dhruva Natchathiram, which was originally planned with Suriya and later with Jayam Ravi, was eventually bagged by Vikram and the project went on the floors earlier this year. Having wrapped the Chennai and Coonoor schedule, the team is currently on a break and they plan to head to the US next.
According to a source from the film’s unit, a major portion of the film will be shot in the US. The team is currently finalising some key locations and they’re most likely to include Manhattan, New York and Los Angeles among other places. “The team is currently busy arranging visa for everyone. Since the process has become tough, they haven’t locked onto a date yet to travel for this schedule. As and when they’ll get a visa, they will head for two weeks schedule to the US,” a source said.
Tipped to be the biggest film in Gautham Menon’s career, the film also stars Ritu Varma and Aishwarya Rajesh. 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.
