Amy in Bengaluru for last leg of The Villain shoot
With shooting expected to be wrapped up on Sunday, director Prem is aiming for an August 24 release
Director Prem is heaving a sigh of relief. Reason? Amy Jackson arrives in Bengaluru tomorrow to shoot a long-pending song, after which The Villain will finally be wrapped up. Over the next four days, Amy, along with Sudeep will shoot for the track, music for which is composed by Arjun Janya.
“We were only awaiting for this song sequence to be done. Now we will speed up the post-production work,” says Prem, adding, “We will break the pumpkin, which signifies the end of the shooting process on Sunday midnight when we are done with the song.”
The Sudeep-Amy song sequence, we hear, is not ‘ordinary’. “There’s a lot of computer graphics work that is going into it,” says the director.
In fact, to save time, the graphics experts will be coming on the sets. “Experts from five companies are participating. Every shot is divided between teams to ensure we wrap up quickly,” he adds.
Working with a release date of August 24 in sight, Prem says, “We are trying our best to meet the deadline. From my end, I am planning to send a normal copy of the film to the censors by the end of the month.”
Even before the second song of the film releases, Prem has made a disclaimer: ‘This song is made to match the story with no intention of pointing fingers at anyone’. While the first song from The Villain, that was released last week, created a record by getting millions of views, Prem and Arjun are getting ready to put out with their second song on July 21. The director announced the news on Twitter.
To Cinema Express, Prem says, “I’ve written this song to suit the story. It has nothing to do with anyone. But if it does seem like it, I can’t help it. I am specifically mentioning this particular track in the hope that there will be no controversy after its release. It’s not meant to point fingers at anyone.”
