Dasavatharam with Madisar Mamis in Uthandi, ECR
Aug 23, 2006
Dasavatharam the much-awaited movie of Kamal Hassan finally began at Uthandi on ECR last week. We had a detailed account of this in our website.

The first shoot was that of a song that got picturised on the mammoth set created by Sameer Chandra from Bollywood. As reported earlier this set is the replica of Airavatheeswarar temple at Darasuram in Kumbakonam.

Though shooting was initially scheduled to commence at this temple, permission to shoot was withdrawn later as the temple comes under the category of heritage site and shooting of such a grandeur stature would definitely disturb the sanctity of the temple. Considering these factors, Sameer Chandra from Mumbai was brought down to recreate the temple magic.

The song that is being shot at Uthandi has Kamal in an Iyengar get-up and, this would be his intro song. Fifty ladies as ‘madisar mamis’ and hundred men were dressed up in a typical filmi style. The total extras were a whopping number of more than 750.

We had earlier reported that the scene would also feature 100 elephants along with Kamal. But industry sources reveal that it is almost an impossible task to transport so many elephants, take care of their needs etc. They should also be very careful as not to antagonize the animal welfare people. Taking all these into consideration, the song may have been shot with a fewer number of elephants. Watch this space for more updates.
