Unluckily, director Saran cancelled shooting over those locations fearing for H1N1 flu. At present, the film has been completely shot in Malaysia, as it is considered to be the safest place.
Much similarly, shooting for other South Indian films, slated to be held in foreign locations have been struck down. Instead, producers have started looking out for local areas for filming those portions, which were supposed to be canned abroad. Likewise earlier, plans were made to shoot Trisha-Gopichand starrer Sankam in South America. But due to high-alerts on swine flue, the crew has shifted to Australia.
