Kamal Haasan’s Uttama Villain is progressing at a rapid pace in the rural regions of Madhya Pradesh. Now, the 8th century scenes of the film are being shot in the picturesque Madhya Pradesh since the team found it difficult to scout locations in Tamil Nadu and other places in South India. The scenes involving the 21st century portions of the film have already been shot extensively in Chennai and Bangalore.
The team earlier toured Turkey to shoot few scenes and a song. The film directed by Ramesh Arvind boasts of an ensemble cast in Andrea, Pooja Kumar, Parvathi Menon, Parvathi Nair, Jayaram, K. Balachandar and K. Vishwanath. Kamal Haasan plays two characters in the film namely Uttaman, an 8th century drama actor and Mano Ranjan, a 21st century cinema superstar.
