Makkal Selvan Vijay Sethupathi has started shooting for maverick director Mani Ratnam’s Chekka Chivantha Vaanam today at the coastal location in Chennai. In the earlier schedules, Mani Ratnam filmed scenes featuring Arvind Swamy, STR, Arun Vijay and Jyothika. As Vijay Sethupathi was busy with his other commitments, he has joined the sets only today.
Sources say that Mani Ratnam will also be soon shooting an important scene between STR and Vijay Sethupathi in a foreign country. Rarely do we have seen foreign locations in Mani Ratnam’s films because the director is known for showcasing the unexplored beauty of India.
Produced by Madras Talkies, Chekka Chivantha Vaanam also has Prakash Raj, Aishwarya Rajesh and Dayana in pivotal characters.
Mani Ratnam’s regular AR Rahman is composing the music for the film and Santhosh Sivan is cranking the camera.
