The shoot of Vadivelu’s heroic venture Imsai Arasan 24am Pulikesi, a sequel to Imsai Arasan 23am Pulikesi, has commenced in Chennai.
Sources say that director Chimbu Devan is currently busy filming a grand song for the film with foreign junior artists and a large number of dancers on a grand set erected in the outskirts of Chennai.
Also, it is learnt that the performance of Vadivelu is making everyone on the sets laugh out loud. “Vaigai Puyal is delivering terrific performance,” sources said.
After playing comic roles for a while, Vadivelu will return in the title role in Imsai Arasan 24am Pulikesi. The sequel started rolling last week. On the occasion, the film’s motion poster was also unveiled.
A huge period set has been erected in Chennai’s EVP studio where some key scenes in the first schedule are being shot. “It’s going to be shot on a bigger canvas,” sources added.
In the first film, Pulikesi was a British sympathiser that made him the enemy of the violent rebel groups that were leading the revolt against the British Raj. However, by the end of the film, he had a change of heart and promises an exemplary governance to his people.
