Journalist-turned-filmmaker Raju Murugan, who made a splash with his Tamil directorial debut Cuckoo last year, is currently filming his second movie in Tamil with a slew of newcomers.
"The regular shooting started four days ago near Dharampuri. The lead cast features mostly newcomers. Along the lines of his debut film, this one too will be very unconventional from the usual crop of films," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
Over the last few months, the first-time actors underwent an acting workshop. "Even for 'Cuckoo', Raju made his lead actors undergo a special workshop," the source said.
The film is being produced by Potential Studios, the company which recently bankrolled Maya, starring Nayantara in the lead.
Since Cuckoo was raved about by almost all critics, Raju Murugan's second film is awaited by many. Now that a source has confirmed that his upcoming film would be as eccentric as his first, this movie might create lots of buzz prior to its release.
Stay tuned to find out more about this exciting project.
