With the shooting of a couple of songs in Japan featuring the lead pair of Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal, the crew of Vijay’s upcoming film Jilla has completed the foreign shooting schedule and would soon be heading home.
Directed by debutant Nesan, the crew and the lead pair were in Japan recently where a romantic number was filmed on Vijay and Kajal whose dance movements were choreographed by Raju Sundaram. The crew is likely to return soon to Chennai.
The film, which has Malayalam megastar Mohanlal in a significant role, is all set to hit the screens in the State and elsewhere on Pongal in the second week of January next year. In order to ensure the film’s release in theatres in time, the crew has divided the cinematography team into two.
The first team would be headed by cinematographer Ganesh and would be in Chennai along with Nesan after its return from Japan. Cinematographer Priyan of Singam and Velayudham fame would be heading the other team to shoot some less significant sequences in Madurai and would be aided by an associate director.
