Viswasam to have north Chennai backdrop, shoot from Feb 22

The shoot of Thala Ajith’s Viswasam will start rolling from February 22, sources in the know say.

The final draft of the script is progressing at a brisk pace and the makers are planning to wrap up the shoot in July. As of now, Sathya Jyothi Films, producers of the film are confident about Deepavali release plans.

“The story will have North Chennai backdrop and the makers hope to finish the entire shooting by maximum July or August,” sources said.

To be produced by Sathya Jyothi Films, the film will see Ajith going back to sporting black hair, after popularizing the salt-and-pepper look in all three previous collaborations with Siva.

The project marks the fourth consecutive collaboration between Ajith and Siva. While many believed that after the debacle of Vivegam, Ajith and Siva might take a break and work on a different combination, they’ve reunited for this project.

There were also rumours that Ajith might team up with Vikram Vedha director duo Pushkar-Gayatri next. However, director Pushkar clarified that they’re still scripting their next project and were pleasantly surprised to hear rumours about their collaboration with Ajith.
