The shooting of Mankatha was scheduled to start on December 6, 2010. But rain became an unexpected visitor and spoiled all the plans of the Mankatha crew. Since it was relentlessly pouring, the Mankatha crew, including director Venkat Prabhu and Premji, made a wise choice by staying indoors.
And not ones to waste time by tucking themselves inside warm clothing, director Venkat Prabhu and Premji were seen at music director Yuvan Shankar Raja's studio composing songs for Mankatha. Even the rain could not dampen the spirits of the crew!
