Rajapattai shoot was stalled after the arrest of the producer Ramesh Babu by the Andhra Police. The shoot couldn’t progress, since there was nobody else to look after the production duties. The set which was constructed in a studio at Saligramam did not see any activity for almost a month.
The shoot was started again over the last week after which the shoot took place regularly, much to the relief of Vikram. Rajapattai is directed by Suseenthiran who makes his fourth film after Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu, Naan Mahaan Alla and Azhagarsamiyin Kuthirai.
Almost all of Vikram’s films have languished in production hell at one point of time or other which have led to his pay cuts, at times, but his recent success with Deiva Thirumagal has helped him regain the top spot. Rajapattai is a commercial entertainer which Vikram has not done so far for about half a decade at least.
