After canning a high-octane action sequence Kashmir, director Anand in Shankar has shot a romantic song Halena with Nayan and Vikram in Phuket, for Iru Mugan. CT got the exclusive still from the song, which we hear, is a breezy number shot in a live party scene on Paradise beach in Phuket.
Confirming the news, Anand Shankar says, “We have shot the song, Halena with Nayan and Vikram on a couple of beaches in Phuket. The song is basically about a couple on a holiday. Some portions were shot at the worldfamous Paradise Beach party, which usually has around 2000 people in attendance. Though we got the official permission from the management to shoot the party in progress, we planned to take candid shots of Nayan and Vikram partying there as we didn't want to disturb the actual mood of the party. And so, we let the duo join the people there and asked them to just party. With one camera, we shot that live party scene with the lead pair and a few of our dancers.It was very challenging as we did n't have any formal shooting equipment for the shoot and we couldn't even go for re-takes. We shot the scene around midnight for a couple of hours. I can say that we actually gate crashed the party and shot it. Vikram and Nayan were confident and put up a lovely performance thoughout the shoot.“
He adds, “Vikram has undergone a makeover from his rugged look for this romantic number.Halena is just a catchphrase for this song and we have plans to release the teaser of this romantic song tomorrow evening.“
