The makers of actor-producer Dhanush’s next yet-to-be-titled Tamil project have erected a massive railway station set here to shoot some important sequences. the film revolves around a character’s journey in a train from here to Delhi.
Prabhu Solomon is all set for his new film with Dhanush, which will start rolling from mid July. The film, which will be shot entirely on trains and stations, will have Dhanush essaying the role of a pantry worker and Keerthi Suresh will play his love interest.
“Since most of the shooting will take place inside a train and in and around railway stations, the team has built a station set with a train. The regular shooting has started and Dhanush is expected to join soon,” a source from the film’ unit said.
Being directed by Prabhu Solomon, the film features Dhanush as a pantry worker in a train. “The story is about the events that take place inside Duronto Express train from Chennai to New Delhi.
Hollywood action choreographer Roger Yuan, who has worked in movies like Batman Begins, Skyfall and Shangai Noon, will be choreographing stunt sequences for the film.
The team is currently planning to shoot action sequences in the train under the supervision of international stuntman Roger Yuan, who has worked in films such as Batman Begins and Skyfall,” the source said. The film also features Keerthy Suresh.
Sources say that the action-thriller produced by Sathyajothi Thyagarajan will have several edge-of-the-seat stunts. Since it is difficult to shoot the entire movie in a real train, a massive set resembling railway stations and a train has been put up at the Binny Mills in the city. As per Roger’s advice, the set has been erected keeping the action sequences in mind. A major chunk of the shoot will take place here.
Meanwhile, Dhanush’s forthcoming Tamil film Maari is slated to release on April 17.
