The Kaththi crew has managed to shoot over half of the film already. The remaining parts, we hear, will be shot in Hyderabad soon. The crew is targeting a Deepavali release, with four songs behind them and one more to go – which will be rendered by Vijay in the coming week. A couple of songs, apparently, will be shot abroad.

Apart from Vijay and Samantha, Kaththi‘s cast includes Neil Nitin Mukesh – who debuts in Tamil – Tota Roy Chowdhury, Sathish, Subbu Panchu and Sayaji Shinde.
