Now the unit is all set to go to Mumbai and shoot in Dharavi, one of the world’s biggest slums.
One of the most difficult things is to shoot a multi-starrer. Not only you have to coordinate artist dates, but also see to it that you shoot on time at the given locations.
A big film like Mankatha which has Ajith, along with an ensemble cast including Arjun, Trisha, Lakshmi Rai, Sneha, Anjali, Vaibhav Reddy and Premji Amaren.
If all goes well, the film may be wrapped up by the first week of March and then the post production has to start.
The film is said to revolve around a gambling gang who indulges in cricket betting during IPL season.
Cloud Nine is almost certain to release Mankatha on May 1, Ajith’s birthday and the start of the summer season in Kollywood.
It is the best time to release a biggie and there is unlikely to be any competition.
