‘Alex Pandian’, which features Karthi as the lead star and Anushka and Nikita Thukral as the leading ladies, is being directed by Suraaj of Maapillai fame. According to the sources, it seems seventy percentage of the movie has been finished by the director and only the post production works are to be done in future. However, for a couple of weeks, the shooting of the movie got delayed for the reasons unrevealed.
Some sources in Kollywood circle stated that the delay in the movie was because of actress Anushka, who is simultaneously engaged with another movie, Irandaam Ulagam, a Selvaraghavan directorial, which also stars Arya playing the lead role. The sources added that the production house for Alex Pandian, Studio Green, is also angry with Anushka for her unplanned break from the shooting schedule. Anushka too was in Georgia for those two to three weeks shooting for Irandaam Ulagam, skipping the schedule here for Alex Pandian.
When contacted, however, the director of movie, Suraaj, denied all those reports. He said that everything is fine between the production house and actress Anushka. He added that Anushka allocated 60 days for the shooting of Alex Pandian and came for the shooting without fail. He further added that still only 10 days of shooting is left to be completed that involves Anushka. He also confirmed that it is not because of Anushka the shooting of Alex Pandian was stalled for a couple of weeks.
Regarding the movie’s progress, the director said that the post production works would be going on in the coming months. He added that most of the talkie portions of the movie are over and right now scenes featuring Karthi and Santhanam are being canned.
The production house, Studio green, has stated that Alex Pandian would be released on 12th of October. The production house, hence, seems to have asked the director to finish off the shooting and post production works as soon as possible!
