Two years after the movie was announced, shooting for the film The Villain starring Kiccha Sudeep and Shiva Rajkumar has finally begun.
The star revealed that his first shot was that of a rope stunt and that it was the first time he had performed such a risky stunt on the first day of the shoot.
The movie had both Sudeep and Shiva Rajkumar playing the lead roles and this is the first time both the stars are collaborating for a film.
Directed by Jogi Prem, the first look poster, released on April 1, had created a stir amongst fans.
Speaking about the film, Director Jogi said that Sudeep and Shiva Rajkumar will be sporting three different looks in the film.
The first look poster shows both the actors with different hairstyles, with Sudeep sporting blue lenses.
Director Jogi told TNIE that the film is driven by signs and describes this as the â€ścode language of villainsâ€ť.
â€śThis is just the beginning and there is more to come,â€ť he was quoted as saying by TNIE.
The first schedule of the film is currently on in Bengaluru and the director has plans of shooting the second schedule in London along with his team. While Shrithi Hariharan has been signed up as the female lead, the search is on for another one.
