Padikathavan has run into starting trouble on the first day of the shoot. The shoot started on Saturday, but had to be stopped temporarily because Gemini Labs, which was supposed to do a film with Dhanush, had earlier lodged a complaint in the Producers’ Council stating that Dhanush who was supposed to act in their movie after Yaaradi Nee Mohini had gone ahead and started shooting for Padikathavan.
After talks with the Producers’ Council, it was decided to let the unit of Padikathavan complete the first schedule since otherwise they’ll run into loses. Post this decision, the shooting of the movie started again by Saturday evening.
Padikathavan will star Danush, Tamanna in the lead roles. The movie will be directed by Suraj for producers Vijaya Productions. Music is by renowned musician Mani Sharma.
