Naan Kadavul has changed hands. The director and producer of the film have dropped out the film. Problems for the film started when the commencement of the shooting of the film, which was launched with great expectations, was delayed. Because of this delay, the films lead actress Bhavana quit the project. To add to this, the cost of production of the film exceeded the films budget when shooting of only 10% of the film was over.
Because of this budget blowup, he handed over the film to another producer Sivasri Srinivasan. Sivasri Srinivasan was associated with the Pyramid Saimira production house. The production house had recently released a press release, which announced that it had the rights of the worldwide release of the film.
All said and done, Thenappan is happy that he has got this project off his hands. The shooting of the remaining portion of the film will commence next week onwards on locations in and around Chennai and a temple near Vellore. Anyhow Thenappan is happy that he is getting out of the project. The shoot of Naan Kadavul will resume from next week in and around Chennai and a temple near Vellore. Meanwhile Thenappan, who was relieved, went to Tirupati and tonsured his hair as a thanksgiving offering to Lord Venkateswara - thanking for saving him from a disaster!
