Actor Vijay Antony is one of the busiest artists of Tamil cinema. Unfortunately, the actor has been in a bit of a rough phase for the past few years. The Naan actor has delivered only two flicks in nearly four years. Fortunately, he has several projects lined up in his pipeline, and soon he might have a number of flicks hitting the theaters successively. For his next venture the actor has teamed up with director Suseenthiran which is touted to be a rural drama. The entertainer is titled Valli Mayil. The project went on floors last month with a small pooja ceremony. The first schedule of shoot was scheduled for a period of 30 days in and around the surroundings of Dindigul including Kodaikanal, Theni, Karaikudi, and Palani. Now we have news that the first schedule which was underway in full swing has been wrapped up.
Actor Vijay Antony himself has shared the news on social media. Taking to his official twitter handle, the actor shared a picture of himself with the team snapped at the shooting spot, and wrote, ‘The first scheduled shoot of Valli Mayil has come to an end amicably.’ Here is the post made by the actor.
It is said that the movie is set in the backdrop of the 1980’s and has a connection to the Tamil god Muruga. Even the picture shared by actor Vijay Antony has a vintage touch to it. The actors in the picture are seen donning the costumes of the ancient period. The second schedule of the shoot will begin soon. There are reports that the production house is in plan to launch the drama as a pan Indian film in languages Tamil, Malayalam, Telugu, Kannada, and Hindi.
