The Purampokku team have begun shooting again, this time in Chennai. A big prison set has been erected for the movie and the lead actors – Vijay Sethupathi, Arya and Karthika Nair – are expected to begin filming soon. This schedule will be a long one as the cast and crew are expected to camp in here for a good one and a half months.
Purampokku went on floors in the beginning of this year in Kulu Manali and was launched by director Ameer. The film is said to be an intense socio-political drama and will deal with the issue of death penalty. SP Jananathan directs the film while Varshan composes music. UTV Motion Pictures is producing this project.
