A lion's share of the shooting of this rural drama has been happening in Theni
Suriya and Karthi
The shooting of director Muthaiah's Viruman had kicked off a few months ago in Madurai. While shooting for a few scenes in the temple town of Tamil Nadu, Karthi had expressed happiness for coming back to the place where his debut movie Paruthiveeran (streaming on YouTube) was shot.
Viruman is the second collaboration of Karthi and Muthaiah after Komban (streaming on Jio Cinema, Sun NXT and MX Player) which released in 2015. The film had hit the headlines for another reason; Aditi Shankar, daughter of maverick filmmaker Shankar, is making her acting debut with the project, which is billed as a rural drama.
Now, the team has completed its shooting, and Karthi has taken to social media to express happiness on the crew pulling off the film. He thanked producer and his actor Suriya, and appreciated Muthaiah and cinematographer Selvakumar for their planning. He wished the best to Aditi for her career and expressed joy on having Yuvan on board as its music director.
He tweeted, "#Viruman completed! Great planning & execution by @dir_muthaiya & @selvakumarskdop. Good luck @AditiShankarofl for a great career, enjoy the journey, you are a natural. So happy to have @thisisysr again! Nandri producer @Suriya_offl & @2D_ENTPVTLTD :) Bye bye Theni. #விருமன் (sic)."
He also posted a couple of stills from the location. While the first picture has the crew members posing for the photo, the second picture is a silhouette of sorts featuring himself and Aditi. In his reply, Suriya, too, thanked Karthi and said he is looking forward to the movie.
His tweet read, "நன்றி Hero saar…! Director Muthaiya and team so looking forward!! #Viruman (sic)." The movie is the second project of Karthi which has been bankrolled by Suriya's 2D Entertainment Pvt Ltd after Kadaikutty Singam (streaming on Amazon Prime Video).
