Touted to be a comedy action drama, Vijay Sethupathi starrer Junga is nearing completion. According to reports, there’s only a song and the climax sequence left to be shot. Despite of the ongoing strike, the team of Junga went to Portugal to wrap up the remaining portions of the much-awaited film.
Vanamagan fame Sayyeshaa Saigal is essaying the love interest of Vijay in the movie. Junga is directed by Gokul who is known for Kaashmora. Vijay and Gokul are collaborating for the second time after Idharkuthane Aasaipattai Balakumara which turned out to be an overwhelming super hit. Siddarth Vipin is the music composer of the film. This will also mark Siddarth’s second collaboration with the actor-director duo. Vijay will be playing the role of a gangster from Paris in the movie.
Junga is also said to be Vijay’s costliest movie made on a budget of Rs 20 crore. The cast and crew of the film are presently shooting the final schedule of the film in Portugal, Georgia and Azerbaijan. Other sequences of the movie were shot in Austria, Bulgaria and parts of Chennai.
Junga also features Madonna Sebastian and Yogi Babu in pivotal roles. The film is bankrolled under Vijay Sethupathi’s production house. Junga is scheduled to hit the screens this summer.
Vijay has already left fans enthralled with his new look in Junga. Along with that, the film’s first look poster, teaser and the song Koottippo Koodave have garnered a positive response from the audience.
Talking about the film, Gokul earlier said, “When Junga’s script got ready, I narrated the story. After a few minutes of silence, he said he would himself produce the flick since the budget crossed more than `20 crore as budget! Sethupathi knows that the project involves a huge sum and didn’t want to put other producers under the knife. He said he’d come forward to produce it so that the film becomes his responsibility.’’
Besides Junga, Vijay also has Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy and Super Deluxe in his kitty. He will also be playing the antagonist in Karthik Subbaraj’s yet to be titled movie with Rajinikanth in the lead role.
