By: Settu Shankar Monday, April 09, 2007 Varanam Ayiram is the next movie of the Gowtham-Surya alliance, which will hit the floor soon, not in India but in Afganistan.
Gowtham wants to shoot this movie at some exotic locations, which have never been seen before in Indian Cinema. After a month long discussions, Gowtham decided to fly to Afghanistan, the soil of terrorism. The unit has prepared their mentality to face everything.
Does Gowtham know about the Taliban threat still alive in the outskirts of the country? Gowtham told: 'Yes, I understand the situation prevailing in Afghanistan. But the story needs such an exotic location. One can justify my decision after watching the movie'.
Any way, it is an open secret why this director has chosen a controversial place for the shoot. It is just a 'publicity stunt.' It's all a part of the game, anyway!
