Last Updated: Wed, May 12, 2010 03:45 hrs

Ace director Bala is going full steam shooting his Avan Ivan starring Arya and Vishal in the lush never seen before locations of Kutralam in southern Tamil Nadu.

Bala whose films take years to complete has now taken an oath that he will complete the film under eight months! The buzz is that he has promised the producers AGS Entertainments that he will deliver the censored first copy of the film on or before December 31, 2010.

During the first schedule of the film in Tenkasi, the rumour mill had it that he hardly shot one scene a day, which irritated the cast especially Vishal. Now he is starting the shoot every day from early in the morning along with cameraman Arthur Wilson and has been able to complete two or three shots a day.

The first heroine of the film is new girl from Chennai Janani Iyer. Now in the second schedule Bala has picked one more heroine Nivedita, earlier seen in Kadhai and Porkkalam. S Ramakrishnan and Bala are jointly writing the script.

After Pitamagan where he had Vikram and Suriya as friends, in Avan Ivan Arya and Vishal plays brothers and have equal footing. Janani Iyer plays a police officer and is rumoured to be Vishal’s pair. Bala has already recorded two songs tuned by Yuvan Shankar Raja.
