It seems that violating a rule by the Tamil Film Producers Council to stop all shoots and other film related works, the cast and crew of Vijay Sethupathi’s ‘Junga’ are currently in Portugal for the last schedule of the film.
It is said that ‘Junga’ team decided to continue shoot after it came to know that the TFPC had allowed units of four films to shoot, by giving ‘special permission’.
Sources say action would be taken against the ‘Junga’ team on its return.
Earlier, in a statement, TFPC secretary S S Durai Raj justified the decision and said, “As announced by us, our decision is to stop film shoots in Chennai from 16 March and units who are camped outside the city can continue shooting till March 23.
Though various production houses approached us to exempt their films, we ordered them to stop the shoot on March 16. But Sun Pictures and three more producers including 18th Cross Pictures, Samuthirakani, and Anto Joseph explained their situation to us and after carefully examining their request, we permitted them to shoot for two to three days.
Regarding AR Murugadoss-Vijay’s film with Sun Pictures, the team has hired 30% of stunt members from Hyderabad and they also told us that it’s tedious to get the action choreographer’s (Ram-Lakshman) dates so we allowed them to conduct the shoot for another three days”.
