Mega update on Arun Vijay-Prasanna’s Mafia

The shoot of Arun Vijay and Prasanna starrer Mafia, directed by young filmmaker Karthick Naren (of Dhuruvangal Pathinaaru) fame, has been completed.

“I owe a lot to the entire team for being a complete support in making this happen. I thank my hero Arun Vijay sir, Prasanna sir, Priya Bhavani Shankar and others, who encouraged and supported me thoroughly,” the director said.

He further said: “The technical team was yet another pillar of support, especially cinematographer Gokul Benoy.  If not for the commendable preparations they made during the pre-production phase, this would have not been possible.

I can’t stop thanking my producer Subaskaran sir of Lyca Productions for banking his trust on a filmmaker like me. This was an opportunity that renewed by hopes and energy to move forward and give my best. We will have the post-production works wrapped up soon and producers will bring in lots of announcements shortly.”

According to producer Subaskaran, “We at Lyca Productions have been working with the big names in the industry. What I really liked about Karthick Naren was not his expertise in storytelling, but his clarity and perfect planning.

Now, to see that he has completed the shooting as promised on time excites the entire production house of Lyca Productions.” While Arun Vijay is the hero of the movie, tipped to be an action entertainer, Prasanna is said to be its antagonist. “A high voltage action scene was shot in Thailand,” sources said.

Priya Bhavani Shankar plays the female lead in this flick and she recently said she had completed shooting for the movie. “That’s a wrap of ‘Mafia’ for me😊 It was a fun cheerful and a super fast quick shoot. We are still wondering about the capacity of this 3 pound super special brain of @karthicknaren_m,” she said in a social media post.

The TV anchor-turned-actress added: “@arunvijayno1 You are a surprise package of kindness dedication perseverance talent positivity and an unexpected friend I made at work🤗 It never felt like we were shooting at a stretch for a month and I’m gonna miss everyone in my routine now. “
