Speaking at the press meet of Kaithi yesterday, producer SR Prabhu said, “80% of the shoot required stunt masters’ Anbariv’s work. We shot at night continuously in a single schedule, for more than 2 months. Many didn’t even see the daylight all through the process. Kaithi started as a small film but now it is quite big. In Hollywood style, it is a film without a heroine or any commercial songs. The script book of the film is just at around 50 pages, the rest is pure action. It’ll be like our own Die Hard.”
“Very few directors are quick to clarify our doubts on the same night that we get it. Lokesh Kanagaraj does it by 11 pm at maximum. We planned to work with Lokesh after Maanagaram itself, for two more films. Thankfully, Kaithi happened,” he added.
Kaithi is slated for Diwali release this month alongside Bigil, and Sanga Thamizhan.
