Chekka Chivantha Vaanam Shooting Stops!

The Magnum Opus of Mani Ratnam is on a hold for now!

Yesterday we reported that Jyothika will be playing Arvind Swamy’s pair in this film and even a wedding scene featuring these two actors was recently shot in Chennai. The wedding scene was apparently to take place in ECR but instead, they decided not to shoot. Due to the theatre strike in TN, shooting of all movies are at a standstill is a solidarity support for Kollywood till this month end.

Chekka Chivantha Vaanam is one of Mani Ratnam’s most anticipated films as of now. The film has a huge lineup of star cast with STR, Vijay Sethupathi, Aishwarya Rajesh, Arun Vijay, Dayana, Prakash Raj and Jayasudha playing pivotal characters.

Made by Madras Talkies as most Mani Ratnam films are the film is compared to Ayutha Yezhuthu wherein the separate storylines and lives of several people come together for goodwill to prevail. Touted as an action drama, the film is supposedly based on industrial pollution and waste. The cinematography is by Santhosh Sivan and music by AR Rahman.
