Chennai, Oct 13 (IANS) Filmmaker Selvaraghavan’s ambitious Tamil project “Kaan” has hit a roadblock and if the industry grapevine is anything to go by, the makers are planning to shelve it due to financial issues.
Starring Simbu, Taapsee Pannu and Jagapathi Babu in the lead, the film was launched a few months ago and the team even shot for a few days.
“The first schedule was wrapped up successfully. But the team couldn’t resume shooting as the funds that were promised didn’t come through. The delay has forced the actors to move on to other commitments,” a source told IANS.
The film was said to be an investigative thriller. Taapsee was to don the khaki for the first time in her career.
Unsure about the fate of the project, its director Selvaraghavan is reportedly planning a film with his brother Dhanush.
“Dhanush has green lit a project with his brother. However, it may not happen this year as the former already has his hands full,” the source said.
