The superstar will give 10 days in March and 5 days in April for the bilingual with versions in Tamil and Telugu. Please note he will have to act a scene twice once with the Tamil stars notably Pasupathi and the other with Jagapathy Babu, a long drawn out process. Vivek has expressed his inability to act in the film, as his dates do not match with others.
Now second string popular comedians and character artists from Tamil and Telugu will be acting in supporting roles. The idea is to complete the film in one schedule and release the film by July. Still P.Vasu is trying to convince the superstar to lengthen his guest appearance. Vasu and music director G.V.Prakash is holed up in a Chennai hotel composing five songs for the film while the original had only two!
As of now, Kuselan shoot will start at Ramoji Rao Film city on March 7, with Rajinikanth joining the shoot on March 14, for the first 10 days of his dates. The crucial climax scenes involving Rajinikanth and Pasupathy will be shot in a village near Pollachi, while song sequences would be picturised in Ooty and backwaters of Kerala.
