Vijay’s ‘Velayudham’ is close on the heels of completion with final portions being shot across Pollachi and Kerala. The entire crew chose Valla Gundapuram situated near Pollachi as the shooting backdrop as it suited well for the script. Incidentally, the little paradisiacal place happens to be the native town of veteran comedy actor Goundamani.
Both actor Vijay and director Jayam Raja visited his home, where the actor’s mother still lives there. Few portions in the film were shot there and it was a pleasant experience for them. The residents of the region shared their precious moments with Vijay and Raja.
The duo felt it more interesting discussing more about the place and lifestyle of people over there.
