Director Selvaa’s Vanangamudi will trace the life of a police officer.
Silverscreen earlier reported that Arvind Swamy had beefed up to play a cop in Selvaa’s upcoming film. After a few changes in the cast, with Daniel Balaji opting out of it, and Simran, Ritika Singh, Nandita Sweta, and Chandini cast in important roles, the shoot began in full earnest.
A report in the The Times of India quotes Selvaa as saying, “Though the film is an action drama, the stunt scenes will be shot realistically. Everyone has action sequences — from Arvind Swami who plays a cop to Simran, who is an investigating officer. Nandita has also taken training to pull off the scenes with perfection.”
Deccan Chronicle quotes the producer, Ganesh, as saying, “I met Arvind Swami sir after a gap and I was amazed with his physical transformation. He looks lean and fit. Director Selvaa sir is canning the initial portions of the story and high-octane sequences where Anbazhagan IPS (Swami) takes on the goons. Rithika Singh, who plays his pair, and Nandita, who essays a woman cop, are also part of this schedule, which will go on for 15 days. The stunts are being shot in a realistic manner.”
Arvind Swamy has been working out for the role. Shooting was paused to allow him to lose weight as part of the role. The FEFSI strike also intervened, causing further delay in shooting. However, now the unit is back on sets, with a schedule of shoot in Thoothukudi, followed by 15 days in Kodaikanal.
