Recently they were shooting in Chennai Airport and the director wanted to shoot some sequences in the runaway area but the airport officials refused to give their permission to shoot on this restricted area. Consequently the crew contacted Mumbai Airport for permission to shoot there but it was also in vain. Hence to avoid this futile situation they contacted Dubai Airport seeking their permission who gave the go ahead signal. The crew has left for Dubai to shoot some talkie portions and some scenes involving Vishal and Upendra.
