April 25, 2010 (Calcutta Tube): Much prior to Vijay’s 50th film ‘Sura’ would hit screens, the actor has already completed the first schedule for ‘Kavalkaran’. Followed by ‘Vettaikaran’, Vijay has once again chosen the title of yesteryear MGR film ‘Kavalkaran’. The actor reasserts that choosing the yesteryear titles of superstars’ films gains more prominence for his films.
As known earlier, ‘Kavalkaran’ is a remake of yesteryear Malayalam film ‘Bodyguard’ (Dileep and Nayanthara in lead roles). The film is directed by Siddhique and marks the comeback of Asin in Tamil film industry.
The first schedule has been shot across the locales of Kumbakonam, Kaaraikudi and Pollachi. According to the buzz, yesteryear actors Raj Kiran and Roja seem to have been signed for this film for enacting the role of Asin’s parents.
Followed by the grand success, ‘Ghilli’ and ‘Kuruvi’, music director Vidhyasagar has scored music for this Vijay’s film.
