Ratnam's Raavan seems to have secretly
kick started already. Shooting is underway
in the lushly backwaters of Chalakkudi
in God's own country, Kerala. Mani shot
Prithviraj and Vikram for a few significant
However, the shooting wasn't devoid
of any hiccups, we hear. Mani and
the crew had to wait for a couple of hours
until the production incharge mobilized 50
boats required for the shooting. The crew
is now camped in Kerala for the first leg
of the shoot schedules and further shooting
is in progress.
Vikram plays the antagonist, a role inspired
by the mythological Hindu character Ravana
– where Mani also derived his title.
