FEFSI’s President RK Selvamani has requested team Viswasam to shoot in Tamil Nadu and not in Hyderabad. Selvamani says that Ajith and Viswasam team could’ve chosen a place in Chennai to construct the set so that thousands of FEFSI employees would have been benefitted.
Selvamani cited Rajinikanth’s Kaala as an example. During Kaala shoot, more than 1000 workers benefited for six months. “If a story demands foreign location or some other city outside Tamil Nadu, directors and producers wouldn’t have many options. But recreating the locations of Tamil Nadu in some other state doesn’t make sense. It affects the livelihood of our workers too”, said Selvamani.
Sources say that a Tamil village set has been constructed in Hyderabad for Viswasam but FEFSI members feel that the team could’ve constructed the same set in the outskirts of Chennai city.
