Yenai Nokki Paayum Thotaa, Dhanush's upcoming romantic-action film being directed by Gautham Vasudev Menon, which also features Rana Daggubati in an important role, will be partly shot in Turkey.
The crew will explore some of the most remote places of the Eurasian country before starting their shooting schedule from this weekend.
"The team plans to shoot a few scenes and a song across exotic locations in Turkey. While the team has already reached Turkey, Dhanush is expected to join later this week to shoot through the weekend," a source from the film's unit told IANS.
The movie which stars Megha Akash as its female lead will be wrapped up by the end of this month or latest by May midweek.
AR Rahman, the man who has two Oscars against his name, was speculated to be the composer of the film. However, the source denied the hearsay.
"As of now, we haven't finalised on any composer. Talks are going on with a few music directors and a final decision will be taken soon," he said.
Jointly bankrolled by P Madan and Gautham Menon, the movie is slated for release by the end of this year.
Interestingly, there are reports suggesting that Simbu's Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada will also be shot in Turkey along with the Dhanush starrer.
Since Achcham Yenbadhu Madamaiyada too, is being helmed by the Neethaane En Ponvasantham director, remaining portions of the Simbu starrer will be shot in Turkey while working on Yenai Nokki Paayum Thotaa, it is said.
While it is rare for a director to work with two top stars from an industry at the same time, it looks like Gautham Menon will be working with both such stars at the same time and in the same place.
Stay tuned for further updates.
