The sudden demise of young director cum cinematographer Jeeva has shocked the entire film world. That has left the film he was shooting - Dham Dhoom - in the lurch. Someone will have to complete it now. According to sources, it is Raja, the Jayam Ravi's elder brother, who has been approached to do the honours.
An assistant of the late Jeeva said that the director had completed 60 percent of the talkie portion during the films Russian schedule. The remaining parts of the film will be shoots in Indian locations. According to the script, the crew might have to visit US to shoot a few scenes. Raja and Ravi have had a string of three continuous hits to their credit - Jayam, M Kumaran and Unakkum Enakkum.
They have next planned to take on the Telugu film Bommarillu. When we asked Jayam Raja about him completing the shooting of Dham Dhoom, he said, " I am yet to decide. I will first have a look at the film - what it is about. But one thing is sure - it will be finished exactly the way the late Jeeva envisioned it." We hope the film put the late directors soul at rest.
