Arun Vijay never misses to enthrall his fans, especially the micro-bloggers and Twitteratis with his looks. And here’s one more dazzler – Ranjith, his character look from “Agni Siragugal” that has become the cynosure.
Naveen, director of the film says, “Ranjith is a kind of guy, who always carries devil-may-care attitude and has never been inclined towards emotions. He’s stubborn and rigid. Both the roles played by Arun Vijay and Vijay Antony have a similarity to strike – Violence is their profession, but morals differ.” So what’s the plot all about? Is it about Good Vs Evil or Good and Befallen Devil teaming up for a mission? Ask Naveen and he smilingly says, “Usually, it’s artistes who often say that the directors have insisted them to remain tightlipped and not to reveal anything about the story, but in my case, the entire crew has been insisting and following the same. We want to offer some surprises for audiences as a full length feature film. But for now, I can assure that Agni Siragugal will have the blend of action, emotions, thrills and philosophies too.”
While speaking about the action elements in the film, Naveen says, “The stunt sequences shot in Russia have be choreographed by stunt coordinator Victor Ivanov of Bourne Supremacy and Stalingrad fame, who has done stunt coordination for major Hollywood productions. Far-famed for winning more awards, he has bagged the prestigious Taurus World Stunt Awards twice for Bourne Supremacy and Stalingrad respectively. The stunts in Kazakhstan have been choreographed by the world famous Jaidok of ‘Nomads Stunt Team’ and being in awe of Arun Vijay’s breathtaking stunts, he has entitled him as a Wild Animal.”
Bankrolled by T. Siva for Amma Creations, Agni Siragugal team will fly down to Kazakhstan by this month to shoot their new schedule followed by next phase of filming in Europe, probably by first week of January 2020. With Akshara Haasan replacing Shalini Pandey, the episodes that were filmed earlier with latter will be reshot with Akshara. Depicting her role in this film, Naveen says, “She doesn’t play the romantic interest of anyone, but her character’s journey will be more emotional and she has equally substantial role as Arun Vijay and Vijay Antony.”
The film marks the debut of Raima Sen in Kollywood, whose character look was released recently as well. The film’s star-cast also has Prakash Raj and JSK appearing in important roles. Scheduled for worldwide release in summer 2020, “Agni Siragugal” has musical score by Natarajan Sankaran and cinematography handled by K.A. Batcha.
