The filming of the upcoming Mohanlal starrer movie Puli
Murugan is reportedly suspended. The filming has been
suspended upon the stay order issued by Kerala High Court, on the
basis of a petition filed by a person named Naushad.
Puli Murugan shoot was progressing at the forest areas
of Pooyam Kutti locality, since past few weeks. Naushad, who is a
localite alleges that the team is misusing the forest, thus causing
harm to the ecosystem.
According to Naushad, an immense amount of plastic and rubber,
which are used for creating sets, has been dumped inside the
forest. The team was also planning to shoot a bomb blast scene in
the forest; which is likely to cause heavy damages to the forest
and its life.
The High Court has reportedly ordered the Malayattoor District
Forest Officer to make a quick enquiry upon the issue and submit a
detailed report soon. The final decision will be made after the
Court analyze the DFO's reports.
Puli Murugan, which is one of the most awaited movies
of the year, has always been in trouble since the pre-production.
Initially, lead actor Mohanlal was unsatisfied with the script and
almost backed out from the project.
Later, the movie faced severe financial issues and was almost in
the verge of being shelved. Puli Murugan, which is
directed by Vysakh, will feature Kamalinee Mukherjee in the female
lead and Prabhu Ganesan in a pivotal role.
