Director Hemant Madhukar put out a tweet recently revealing the first shot he took for his upcoming film Nishabdam/ Silence. He wrote, “My first day first shot of #Nishabdam #silence @ActorMadhavan #AnushkaShetty @yoursanjali @actorsubbaraju @ishalinipandey #avasaralasrinivas.”

Stylist Neeraja Kona tweeted a pic of the film’s clapboard and wrote, “To new beginnings #Nishabdam @peoplemediafcy @hemantmadhukar @konavenkat99 @konafilmcorp #Anushka @ActorMadhavan #MichealMadsen @yoursanjali @actorsubbaraju @Deonidas #SrinivasAvasarala #Shalinipandey #GopiSundar.”

Director Kona Venkat is bankrolling the film with Madhavan and Anushka Shetty in the lead roles. Confirming the project, he had tweeted earlier, “Official announcement regarding the Tamil version of our film with Madhavan, Anushka, Anjali, Shalini Pandey, Subbaraju etc.. will come soon.. shooting begins from March. Nothing is official till then @peoplemediafcy @KonaFilmCorp.”

There are also reports that Michael Madsen of Kill Bill and Reservoir Dogs fame will be roped in for a pivotal role in the film and this has been confirmed recently. Sources in the know say that Nishabdam / Silence is a crossover movie and a silent film. It will be a unique attempt by the filmmaker.

Reports are that the team will be flying down to the US to shoot a major portion of the film there. With the weather conditions being extreme and going to minus degrees, it will certainly be hard for the team to shoot. However, the director is intent on shooting the film in those harsh conditions to get the best visuals effects. The technical crew of Nishabdam / Silence includes Gopi Sunder for music and Shaneil Deo for cinematography.

Meanwhile, Madhavan is busy with Rocketry: the Nambi Effect, which will also mark his directorial debut. Maddy will be playing the rocket scientist Nambi Narayanan in the film. A lot of research has gone into this project, we hear. Nambi Narayanan was a rocket scientist at the ISRO. He was accused of espionage in 1994 and was arrested by the CBI. However, it was proved in 1998 that he was innocent following which the Kerala government settled the case with a compensation of Rs 50 lakh.
