Sandalwood will witness a multi-starrer film after a long time with two pillars of the industry collaborating for the first time. Kiccha Sudeep and Shiva Rajkumar are teaming up for a film titled The Villain which is being directed by Prem. The first look posters of the film were revealed few months ago and sent the fans into a frenzy with their looks in the film. The excitement levels around the film are quite heavy given the stature of the stars involved in the film.
Recent reports suggest that the unit of The Villain was supposed to shoot in London at prominent places but the schedule had to be rescheduled because of the terror attacks in the prominent city. “Following the London terror attacks, there has been stringent security deployed around tourist spots like Buckingham Palace. Since Prem wanted to shoot around prominent places in the city, they have now pushed the schedule ahead by a month,” a source close to the unit was quoted in a leading daily.
The unit has now moved to Bangkok schedule which was originally scheduled a month after the London’s schedule. The unit will complete the shooting in Bangkok and then come back to London for the rest of the shoot, provided the permissions are granted by the authorities.
The Villain will have one of the Super Stars, Kiccha Sudeep and Shiva Rajkumar, play a negative role, and the makers have kept that part of the film under wraps. The makers want to maintain the suspense around the film so that the fans get a nice surprise when the film releases.
