Director Atlee is extremely pre-occupied with the post production work of his big-budget flick Bigil. Touted to be a sports drama, the film stars Vijay, Nayanthara, Jackie Shroff, Kathir, Yogi Babu and Indhuja Ravichandran in significant roles.
Producer Archana Kalpathi, in a recent interview, revealed that the budget of Bigil is a whopping Rs 180 crore. Meanwhile, there were rumours that Atlee overshot their budget which is why the film turned out to be too expensive.
However, in her recent interview to Behindwoods, producer Archana Kalpathi rubbished the rumours. She said, “Honestly, a producer needs a good film. The production cost is between a producer and director. Hence a director can't spend beyond the producer's knowledge. I find the criticism unfair since he has given a phenomenal film, and the producer has to spend for the creator's vision."
Bigil, produced by AGS Entertainments, will hit the theatres on Diwali. The film got submitted for censors early today. There are reports trickling in saying that the film has got a U/A certificate. However, an official confirmation is yet to be out.
