Nila has been very selective in choosing her projects in Tamil. Killadi was one among those films. But the sudden suspension of the movie's shooting has become a cause of worry for Nila.
The shooting for the Bharath starrer film proceeded at a brisk pace, and the director Venkatesh has completed shooting for nearly 70 percent of the movie by now.But the producer Salem Chandrasekar has suddenly lost his interest in the project, and requested the director to suspend the shooting until further instructions are given out by him. Earlier, Chandrasekar had produced Sabari, a Vijayakanth starrer film, which became a disaster for the producer at the box-office.
Due to paucity of funds, director Venkatesh has stopped the shooting of Killadi, and will resume it once funds are available. A few song sequences and the climax are yet to be filmed. The director has decided to concentrate on his next project with Singakutti starring Sivaji Junior (Sivaji Film's Ramkumar's son).
Nila said: "The suspension of Killadi shooting really worries me. I had not anticipated such a situation. My last film was Lee. So naturally I've pinned high hopes on Killadi. I hope the shooting of the film will resume soon and the producer is able to tide over his financial crisis..."
Let us all hope that the producer is able to recover from his financial crisis and complete this film, much to the relief of Nila!
