Producer N. Subhash Chandra Bose says that the shoot of Suriya-starrer Tamil actioner “Anjaan” was halted, but was not disrupted as rumoured. He says everything is under control and the shoot is progressing smoothly.
On Sunday, members of the Tamil fringe groups came to meet N. Linguswamy, director of “Anjaan”, and requested him to stop the screening of his recently distributed Tamil film “Inam” which revolves around a group of orphans during the Sri Lankan civil war.
“The shoot had to be stopped because they had come to meet the director and discuss about ‘Inam’. There was absolutely no protest as is being rumoured. Everything is under control and we have continued shooting,” Subhash told IANS.
Linguswamy distributed Santosh Sivan-directed “Inam”, which released worldwide Friday. Following the request from these groups, Linguswamy Monday pulled out “Inam” from cinemas in Tamil Nadu.
“We’ve nearly completed 80 percent of the film’s (‘Anjaan’) shooting. We are also planning to release the film’s look soon,” he added.
“Anjaan” also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Vidyut Jamwal, Manoj Bajpai, Rajpal Yadav, Dalip Tahil in important roles.
Suriya’s Anjaan has an entertaining item number danced by none other than Desi Biyz actress Chitrangada Singh.
Composed by Yuvan Shankar Raja, Viveka has penned the lyrics for this special song ‘Siripu en specialty, Silk Smitha community’ in Anjaan and makers are confident that the song is sure to top the charts.
Samantha is playing Suriya’s love interest in Lingusamy directing Anjaan and the film’s unit is working round the clock to release Anjaan on August 15. Anjaan casts Vidyut Jamwal, Soori, Manoj Bajpai and others in key roles.
Thirupathi Brothers and UTV producing Anjaan has cinematography by Santosh Sivan.
Lingusamy’s Anjaan is in production stage and looks like that the next schedule of the film is all set to commence in March first week. Anjaan starring Suriya and Samantha in the lead roles is jointly produced by Thirrupathi Brothers and UTV Motion Pictures. We hear from the team that Santhosh Sivan, who is handling the cinematography for the film, will go for a break in promoting his film Inam.
Most of the portions had been canned in Mumbai and the forthcoming schedule will also be filmed in Mumbai. The ensemble cast includes Prakash Raj, Manoj Bajpai, Vidyut Jamwal and many others.
The Suriya – Samantha starrer Anjaan, directed by Lingusamy is one among the most expected films this year. This film has already been shot extensively in Mumbai and Goa, and close to 60% of the film has been completed.
Yuvan Shankar Raja has been signed on to do music for the film and 5 songs have been planned totally. Yuvan has already worked with Lingusamy in films such as Sandakozhi, Vettai and Paiyya and his songs played a big role in the success of all these films.
Anjaan cast Samantha as the female lead for Suriya and Sonakshi Sinha has done an item number in the film, while Prakash Raj, Manoj Bajpai, Vidyut Jamwal, Rajpal Yadav, Murli Sharma and others played key roles.
Anjaan has been planned as an August 15th release to coincide with Independence Day. August 15th also happens to be a Friday, it must be noted.
