Special set worth Rs 1.5 Crore for Jayam Ravi's Bhoologam
The climax of upcoming Tamil action-thriller Bhoologam, featuring Australian wrestler Nathan Jones and Jayam Ravi, is ready to be canned in a boxing ring set specially erected here at the cost of Rs.1.5 crore.
Nathan Jones arrived in the city Tuesday, and will soon start shooting for the film.
"Nathan arrived last night (Tuesday). He is likely to start shooting the talkie portion today (Wednesday) and the fight sequences in a few days. We have erected a special boxing ring set in a studio here at the cost of nearly Rs. 1.5 crore," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Jayam Ravi and Nathan, who had previously locked horns in Tamil action-drama Peranmai, will be fighting each other in a boxing match this time for a 12-minute sequence.
International stunt coordinator Larnell Stovall, who is known for films such as The Hunger Games, Jarhead and Olympus Has Fallen, will choreograph the stunts for the boxing scene.
Bhoologam, which is being directed by debutant Kalyan Krishna, is the story of a boxer, played by Ravi in the film. It is being produced by Venu Ravichandran of Aascar Films.
The film also features Trisha Krishnan, Prakash Raj, Ponvannan and Ganja Karuppu.
