Ace director Selvaraghavan has been in Leh on the foothills of Himalayas in Ladakh for the last two weeks shooting for his untitled film with Vikram, Andrea and Swathi.

The film produced by Kanakaratna Ramesh has music by Ismail Darbar with Ramji as cinematographer.

Nearly 50 strong unit from Chennai is shooting for the film in the most adverse conditions. The day time temperature is hovers between -5 degrees and 3 degrees while in the night it dips as low as -15 degrees.

There are frequent snow storms which makes matters worse and adding to the miseries the unit members are finding the biting cold too much and falling sick.

Most of the film crew is also finding it difficult to breathe due to the high altitude problems. But Vikram and the rest of the unit says that it is one of the most picturistic locations in the world.

The only person in the unit who is cheerful and up on his feet is the hero Chiyaan Vikram, who has got himself acclimatized to the rough and tough conditions. Selva is trying to finish as much of the shoot as possible.

But the latest we hear is that extreme winter has set in making it impossible to set up camera and shoot in the outdoors. Finally the unit has decided to come back to Chennai, after completing almost 70 percent of the schedule.
