Nilgiris is one of the most favorite locations for ace director Mani Ratnam. For people who don’t know, several Kashmir sequences in Roja were actually shot in Coonoor and the famous ‘Chaiya Chaiya’ song too was filmed in Nilgiris.
Now, Sify.com learns that the twenty days first schedule of Mani Ratnam’s tentatively titled Kaatru Veliyidai will commence in Nilgiris and surrounding locales from July 8. Keerthana, daughter of actor Parthiepan is working as an assistant director in the film and she along with the entire AD team has already reached Coonoor prior to the first day shoot.
In fact, Parthiepan has posted a long message on his Twitter page saying that he is going to miss his daughter for twenty days and unintentionally revealed the schedule plans of the team.
Touted to be a romantic entertainer, the film has Karthi, Aditi Rao Hydari and RJ Balaji in important roles.
