'Ilaya Thalapathy' Vijay is busy shooting for ‘Villu’. The movie, directed by Prabhudeva and produced by Ayngaran Films International, kicked off in Karaikudi recently.
A number of scenes featuring Vijay and Nayantara were shot in Karaikudi. And now the buzz is that the crew would shoot a major portion of the film in Italy. The script involves a foreign country in the second half and so the crew will be heading for Italy this July.
Sources close to Prabhu Deva reveal that he has also planned to shoot two song sequences in exotic Italy.
It sure would be interesting to see Vijay chasing and hunting down the baddies in this European country. Nayantara sizzled with her attitude and attractive modern costumes in ‘Billa’ and the movie was set in Malaysia. So, foreign destinations suit her big time and with Nayantara on song now, one can expect Prabhu Deva to exploit her talents.
Vijay and Nayantara on the prowl in Italy….sounds interesting.



Director A R Murugadoss and Suriya teamed up to render a hit in ‘Ghajini’. The movie sky-rocketed both Suriya and Murugadoss to stardom.
Murugadoss has almost completed the Hindi version of ‘Ghajini’. It features Aamir Khan and Asin in the lead roles.
Moving ahead, he says, “Plans are on to commence my next venture soon. It would be a big venture - produced by myself. I am planning to team up with Suriya for it is a tri-lingual, to be made simultaneously in Tamil, Telugu and Hindi”.
“Suriya would act in a never before role and it would be a straight contrast to ‘Ghajini’”, he said.
“The Hindi version of ‘Ghajini’ has shaped up well. I should thank Aamir Khan for co-operation”, he added. He denied reports appeared in few sections of the press that he would be doing a movie with Vishal.
“I will commence the trilingual production venture after the Aamir Khan starrer ‘Ghajini’ gets released.”
