Kuselan – Superstar Rajinikanth’s next venture – is up and running and shoots are on in the Ramoji Rao film city in Hyderabad. Scenes involving Nayanthara, Sneha, and Rajini were shot today. Rajini plays himself for this Tamil version of the Malayalam hit Katha Parayumbol that also has Pasupathy and Meena in vital roles.
Besides, scenes of Livingston and Santhana Bharathi who play the smalltime local goons wanting to be photographed with Rajinikanth were also canned in today’s shoots. Prabhu and Manobala played the police officers trying to maintain the crowd under control.
Produced by Balachander for his Kavithalaya Productions and directed by P. Vasu, Kuselan’s background music is scored by G.V. Prakash. Rajini’s role for Kuselan will be extensive as opposed to the cameo Mammootty appeared for Katha Parayumbol.
