People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) has requested team Gorilla to use graphics instead of using the real chimpanzee.
In their clarification, team Gorilla has said that they have completed portions involving the chimpanzee by carefully obtaining permission from the Government of Thailand and India, the remaining sequences will be only shot in India.
PETA has told the team to follow the strategy of Planet of the Apes and The Jungle Book by hiring CG experts to recreate wild animals. Sources say that the shoot of Gorilla was on hold because of the Tamil Film Producers Council’s strike. Directed by Don Sandy, the film also has Shalini Pandey of Arjun Reddy fame, Sathish, RJ Balaji, Yogi Babu and Ramdoss of Mundasupatti fame playing pivotal characters.
Touted to be a heist thriller, Sam CS of Vikram Vedha fame is composing the music for the film.
