Ever since the announcement of the multi-starrer Agni Siragugal was made, expectations have been set high for this action thriller which brings together the combination of Vijay Antony and Arun Vijay for the first time. Directed by Naveen of Moodar Koodam fame, the film is said to narrate the incidents that take place when two people from grossly different backgrounds meet each other. Vijay Antony is currently shooting for his portions in Kolkata, where the shoot will go on for a month.
Soon after this, the actor will be joined by Arun Vijay in the final schedule of the film, which will take place in Europe. Arun, who is about to get done with his Telugu action thriller Saaho, will be allotting two weeks of time to this film before he moves on to his boxing drama Boxer which co-stars Ritika Singh.
Agni Siragugal is named after late Indian President Abdul Kalam’s book of the same name, but there is no clarity on whether the film too is inspired from the events that the book talks about. The film has Shalini Pandey as the heroine, along with Nasser, Prakash Raj and Jagapathi Babu in pivotal roles. It will hit the screens by the end of the year.
