During a recent chat with a popular website, producer Hema Rukmani opened up about working with superstar Vijay in the eagerly-awaited ‘Mersal’ and said that he cooperated with them throughout the shoot. She went on to add that he enjoyed shooting in Europe and never asked them to reschedule/postpone the shoot.
“Vijay sir liked the serenity of Europe. The hotel we stayed was above a shopping mall, and he even asked us if there’s any good shop to purchase things. But I don’t think we gave him the time to shop [smiles]. He was very cooperative and always there on time for the shoot, every single day. Irrespective of how strenuous the previous day was, he had never asked us to reschedule or postpone the shoot. Rain or shine, he was there,” she added.
Hema Rukmani also spoke about Vijay’s magician avatar and said that ‘Thalapathy’ performed all the tricks himself. As such, there was no need to use CGI.
“I guess there are around 16 magic scenes and no CGI was employed; Vijay sir entirely did the sequences by himself,” added the producer.
Well, this is a nice revelation and is bound to add to the buzz surrounding ‘Mersal’. In case you did not know, ‘Mersal’ is touted to be an action drama and has been directed by Atlee. Besides ‘Thalapathy’, it also features Samantha Ruth Prabhu, Kajal Aggarwal and Nithya Menen in the lead. If all goes as planned, it will hit screens on Wednesday.
