Jiiva's upcoming comedy, Kavalai Vendam, which is being directed by Deekay was thought to be dropped by many after the team stopped shooting for the film, right after completing the first schedule.
The pause in the continuity was initially caused by the state
elections. But, there were no updates about the progression of the
movie, even days after the elections were concluded.
But now, everything seems to be right back on track as the
shooting has been resumed with all the lead actors, including Kajal
Aggarwal, Bobby Simha and Sunaina, under one roof.
"The initial shooting schedule with the lead cast was in January
in Kotagiri. We also shot for a couple of weeks. Then, in between,
we had put the shoot on hold due to elections. Also, as it is a
multi-starrer, it took time to bring all the actors back together," a source close to the project told Times of India.
The shooting will now resume at Kotagiri and will then move on
Now, everybody's dates have been finalised, and we will be
shooting with Jiiva, Kajal, Bobby and Sunaina for a week in
Kotagiri, and then will continue filming in Chennai. The cast of
the film is having a whale of a time post pack-up each day. We team
up and cook different recipes together, and eat, and chill out,"
the source has added.
Jiiva, who is awaiting the release of Thirunaal, which
also stars Nayanthara, will also be seen in Sangili Bungili
Kadhava Thorae, being directed by Ike Radha.
He has also signed two more projects namely, Gemini
Ganesan and Kayavargal.
While Gemini Ganesan will be directed by Muthu Kumar,
Kayavargal will be helmed by Mahend. Both the films are
under pre-production mode.
Stay tuned for further updates.
