Suriya’s big-budget action thriller in Kaappaan is now getting ready, with a majority of the shoot being canned well in advance. The team is thrilled with the output they have received so far, more so with Suriya’s performance which will feature him in five different looks. Also starring Mohanlal, Arya, Sayyeshaa and Boman Irani, the KV Anand directorial is looking at the release date of August 15th, the Independence Day weekend.
The interesting fact here is that Prabhas’ massive action entertainer Saaho too is gearing up for a worldwide release on the same date. The team have got done with their overseas portions and are now canning an important scene at the Ramoji Film City in Hyderabad. Art director Sabu Cyril is in the process of recreating the entire Bandra-Worli sea link for an action sequence which will be shot over the course of four days. The entire shoot for the film will be wrapped up by the mid of March, with full focus on the post-production work thereon.
If this clash does take place, it will be one of the biggest box office battles in South India. Putting it together, both the films feature big stars from different industries and are not limited to one set of audience alone. With heavy expectations and buzz riding on both Kaappaan and Saaho, fans can get set for nothing short of a big treat in August!
