The ‘Ghajini’ duo are back together again filming ‘7am Arivu.’ This film is touted to be a sci-fi thriller with spell-binding special effects and a first-time pairing of Suriya and Shruthi Haasan. Another first of this film is the villain, Johny, who has landed in India for this film straight from Vietnam.
We had informed you earlier that the cinematographer of ‘7am Arivu,’ Ravi K. Chandran had to leave for attending his prior commitment to Bollywood for the cinematography of a Hrithik Roshan film that is being produced by Karan Johar. But it looks like Ravi’s stint with his Bollywood filming ended abruptly when the cinematographer had an opinion clash with the director of the film.
The next thing we know, the cinematographer joining the ‘7am Arivu’ team to continue his work here. Ravi’s coming back seems to have made the entire team happy. Suriya, a master of makeovers is touted to appear in triple avatars never-seen-before. Suriya who also learnt juggling for the film has also done some gravity-defying circus performances in the film.
Sources close to the film’s unit have suggested that the actor will be performing the stunts on stage for the music launch event of ‘7 Am Arivu.’ All these tid-bits work as boosters for the numerous fans the actor has got across the globe, who are looking forward to the film eagerly!
While AR Murugadoss is still denying the rumours saying his film with Suriya ‘7am Arivu’ is based on the recently released Christopher Nolan’s Inception we learn the film is no where connected with the Hollywood film. Even Shruthi Kamal who plays the heroine opposite Suriya had screamed Murugadoss’ film is an original film.
Sources say ‘7am Arivu’ is based on a circus artiest and the role played by Suriya plays a trapeze artiste who also doubles up as an animal trainer. The ‘7am Arivu’ unit is currently shooting at Great Bombay Circus in Coimbatore. It will later go to China to can some scintillating acrobatic scenes with the help of experts there. The range of characters Suriya is opting for in recent times is amazing to say least.
In Tamil there weren’t many films that has circus as a part of main story. Except for MGR’s ‘Parakkum Paavai’ and Kamal’s ‘Apoorva Sahodarargal’ and ‘Mumbai Express’ we don’t have any memorable film dealing with the lives of people in circus.
