The shooting of Kamal Haasan's new film "Uthama Villain" commenced on 3 March in Bangalore.
Film's director and Kamal's close friend Ramesh Aravind has revealed that he shot an interesting sequence with Kamal on the first day of his shoot.
"Uttama Villain shoot started today, finished an interesting sc.as always Kamalji rocked," Aravin tweeted on his micro-blogging site Twitter on Monday.
"Uthama Villain," deemed as a comedy entertainer, is reportedly about an ageing superstar played by Kamal Haasan.
The film has been generating a lot of buzz ever since it was announced. Prior to the launch of "Uthama Villain," Kamal visited Bangalore for a make-up trial and had a five-hour long session to finalise his look. The first look poster of the Kamal starrer was released on Friday and created a lot of buzz.
It is being said that the poster design, a colourful mask, is inspired from "Theyyam" - a performing art that is popular in Kerala. A few other posters have also been released to announce the commencement of the film's shooting.
One such poster shows Kamal, apparently, performing on stage and trying to hold a child's hand, while his other hand is on the camera. These posters seem to indicate that Kamal is a performing artist.
Besides the first look posters, the official teaser of "Uthama Villain" was also released. The teaser shows the colourful mask that opens its eyes with a thrilling background score. The teaser has gone viral and has received more than 3.4 lakh hits. To watch the teaser, click HERE.
The film's story and screenplay is by Kamal, while crazy Mohan is reportedly working on the dialogues. Its cinematography will be handled by Shyam Dutt and editing will be done by Vijai Sankar.
Details about the film's cast are yet to be revealed. Comedian Vivek and Kamal's mentor K.Balachander have been reportedly roped in to be a part of the film. However, an official announcement on the cast members is still awaited.
The Kamal starrer is produced under Lingusamy's Thirrupathi Brothers' banner.
