Prithviraj to shoot for Kaaliyan in October
The film is based on a tale of fierce warriors from Venad and Prithviraj will essay a man who has to undertake a perilous mission
The pre-production process of Prithviraj’s upcoming period film, Kaaliyan, is underway, and filming of the project is expected to begin by October, after the actor completes Blessy’s Aadujeevitham whose production will resume this March.
Kaaliyan is based on a tale of fierce warriors from Venad and Prithviraj will essay a man who has to undertake a perilous mission. The film was supposed to start earlier but got pushed due to Prithviraj’s commitment to Aadujeevitham. He will be devoting the next 6-7 months for Aadujeevitham and has undergone a strict diet and workout regimen.
On Sunday, the actor sat down with the Kaaliyan team with another round of discussions. Since the film requires extensive, but realistic, VFX work and shooting in multiple locations, the team is being meticulous with their pre-production work. Lucifer cinematographer Sujith Vaassudev will be working in this film.
Set in the 1700s, Kaaliyan will require Prithviraj to spend a few months on a continuous shoot. It will be helmed by debutant S Mahesh. Rajeev Govindan is producing it under the banner of Magic Mountain Cinemas. The audition and casting call notices for the film will be issued soon.
