The shooting for Saran’s Attagasam has been progressing in and around Tuticorin old bus stand. The scenes involved the villains chasing a person through the bus stand and finally killing him brutally. Later its hero Ajit comes to the scenes in a white dhothi and half sleeve shirt and confronts the villain which is one of the highlights in the film.
The scenes created a ruckus among the public as they mistook the action to be real as Tuticorin bus stand has seen similar daylight murders and fights among local mafia in the past.
According to director Saran: “We tried to make the scenes as authentic as possible and hence chose this location. These scenes are a major highlight of the film and Ajit has done some breath taking stunts without a double!”.
Attagasam is shaping out as one of the biggest movies of the year and is due for Diwali release.
