Manirathnam last shot a film in a foreign locale almost a decade ago. The film was ‘Guru’. The director makes it a point to shoot his film in India, until and unless it is totally important for him to shoot abroad.
Now for his upcoming film ‘Kaatru Veliyidai’, staring Karthi and Aditi Rao Hydari the director will be shooting in Bulgaria. He needs a backdrop of a snow clad mountain. This is for a song. The film is almost complete with just a week of shooting left. The team is hoping to complete the film by the end of this month. Music for the film is scored by A R Rahman.
