The Jayam Ravi – Hansika Motwai starrer Romeo Juliet is being filmed at a brisk pace and the movie is about to start its final schedule of filming. But before that, the crew are finishing up what is rumoured to be a very interesting portion of the flick with Jayam Ravi and the other leading lady in the film – Poonam Bajwa.
This part is currently being shot in Valasaravakkam, Chennai. The final schedule will only commence after this and that will also include Hansika. There is also a song that remains to be shot outside India, though the locations for this have not been revealed to the media yet.
Romeo Juliet is touted as a romantic comedy based on the original Shakespearean classic tale, but set in the modern days. One wonders how the tragic tale of the two star crossed lovers that ends in tears has been spun by the writers in to a comedy though it looks like the talent involved is definitely competent enough to accomplish that.
Directed and written by Lakshman whose maiden directorial venture this is, the film is being produced by S Nandhagopal under the banner of Madras Enterprises.
D Imman will be composing the melodies for this film and Soundarrajan is the man wielding the camera. Editing work will be handled by Anthony.
The movie has, in addition to the star cast, a special appearance by Arya. Madhumita is also part of the supporting cast.
Jayam Ravi apparently plays a fitness trainer to the stars while Hansika’s character has been decribed by the actress herself as “a girl with a futuristic attitude.”
Interestingly, Nayantara was the first actress considered for the lead female part in the flick, but the director later decided against it as she was also pairing with Jayam Ravi in another film – Thani Oruvan.
Let us wait and see how this venture turns out when it hits the screens in 2015.
