The movie is likely to hit the screens on April 2022, and might take on the much-awaited KGF: Chapter 2
Vijay and Pooja Hegde
Even as Nelson Dilipkumar's Doctor is yet to hit the screens, the shooting of his next project, Beast, is happening at a brisk pace. The movie was announced last year, and its title was revealed on Vijay's birthday a few months ago, with a couple of posters, too, released along with it.
Pooja Hegde was roped in as the film's female lead later, marking her return to Kollywood after almost a decade. The first major schedule of the movie happened at Georgia much before restrictions were implemented in Tamil Nadu owing to the second lockdown.
Later, the team shifted to Chennai to shoot a few crucial schedules, apart from a Delhi schedule which was wrapped up recently. Pooja has now joined the latest schedule in Chennai; she took to Instagram and informed the same with a photo of hers wearing a mask. She is said to be participating in the shoot for a few days. It is also said that the crew is considering the shooting of climax sequences in Chennai, instead of Russia, where they had initially planned. If everything goes well, the shooting of Beast will be wrapped up by November.
Anirudh Ravichander is composing music for the action flick, which has cinematography by Manoj Paramahamsa and editing by R Nirmal. Selvaraghavan plays one of the antagonists in the movie, which has Shine Tom Chacko, Aparna Das, Yogi Babu and VTV Ganesh among others playing important roles.
The film, which has National Award winning stunt choreographers Anbariv composing action sequences, is expected to hit the screens on April 2022. It is heard that the much-awaited pan Indian project, KGF: Chapter 2, is also eyeing a theatrical release across the world around the same time.
