Director Mysskin’s Mugamoodi with Jiiva in the lead went on floors in Chennai today. In this film, Jiiva will play the role of a super hero, which means he is all set to become Tamil cinema’s first super hero. Mugamoodi will be the first super hero movie for UTV in Tamil.
Narain, who has earlier worked with Mysskin in the blockbuster Anjathey, will play the villain. Narain and Jiiva recently underwent special martial arts training with experts flown in from China. A super hero lies in every one of us; this forms the basic crux of Mugamoodi. It is said that consultants from IIT will create hi-end gadgets for the film and the super hero costumes will be designed by select teams from NIFT. Femina Miss India finalist Pooja Hegde is the heroine.
The film is expected to grace theatres in 2012.
