Remember the Tamil adult comedy Trisha Illana Nayanthara, which led to a lot of discussion and debate upon release? The director and lead actor of the film – Adhik Ravichandran and composer-actor GV Prakash Kumar – have joined hands for the second time for a fantasy love story which will be entirely shot in 3D. The team has already begun shooting and they hope to push the envelope with their efforts.

Talking to Deccan Chronicle, Adhik said: “It is true that GV and I are joining hands yet again. We have already commenced the shoot and the first schedule which went on for 15 days was wrapped up in Ooty. I would call this as a fantasy love story. Sonia Aggarwal has an important role to essay in this venture.”  

Adhik says they’re not using 3D just as a gimmick to gain attention and are really shooting using the technology instead of filming in 2D and later converting to 3D. “We are shooting the film in the 3D format directly and there is no conversion at all. Further schedules will take place in Chennai and I will be announcing the heroine in another two weeks.  The technical team includes cinematographer Abinandhan, art director Ilaiyaraaja and costume designer NJ Sathya. Anandhraj, Yogi Babu and VTV Ganesh play key roles. This is Adhik’s third film after the disastrous AAA with Simbu. He hopes to bounce back strongly.   

AAA, which emerged as one of the biggest flops of this year, was originally planned to be released in two parts after the team failed to complete the project in time. The film released and was heavily panned by critics and audiences alike. Following the film’s huge failure, its producer is said to have complained against Simbu, claiming that the budget shot up because of his reckless attitude and landing on the sets late on most days. Simbu gained a lot of weight for one of the roles in the film and he’s struggling to lose it for his next outing with Mani Ratnam. Simbu is also said to have a project with Premam director Alphonse Puthren in the offing. The director even announced that he is all set to begin casting for his next Tamil film earlier this year. However, there’s been no development on that front since the first announcement and it is rumoured that the project has been shelved.
