Pokkiri team leaves for Australia just for Asin’s sake
Dec 11, 2006
Shoots of Pokkiri have been progressing in top gear in and around Chennai city. Now, news has it that the movie is as good as finished except for a few dance numbers. To can a couple of these songs in breathtaking locales in Australia – to abide by the tacit policy of Tamil cinema – the crew has embarked on a flight from Chennai Airport last evening.
Since Asin had a small mishap at the sets of Pokkiri, it is difficult to shoot a dance sequence indoors as close-up shots would reveal Asin writhing in pain. Hence the crew has planned to shoot dance scenes in Australia where long shots can be combined with picturesque greenery of the country side wherein facial expressions can be done away with.
Besides Asin, the crew included Vijay, dance master Raju Sundaram, and cinematographer Nirav Shah. Surprisingly, the unit did not comprise of Prabhudeva the director of Pokkiri. The ace dancer seemed to have entrusted the responsibility to his big bro Raju Sundaram. The crew’s homecoming is expected on December 17 th after the completion of the shoots.
Pokkiri has raised high expectations among Vijay fans and the audio release of the movie is slated in the near future. Mani Sharma scores music for Pokkiri.
