Bharat Niwas is now busy shooting his upcoming movie “Yakkai Thiri” and according to him, it has proved an uncommon experience for him. In an interview with a leading platform Bharat says - "I have been married on screen dozens of times, but in Yakkai Thiri, for the first time, I get to marry twice in the same film. The weddings are with different heroines (Janani and Sonakshi Singh Rawat), but interestingly, both sequences were shot and completed on the same day. It made for a unique shooting experience for me."
The movie is directed by Bharath Mohan and the sequences of scenes were also planned by him and as a director, he said- "I reached the sets dressed in veshti-sattai (Dhothi Kurtha). Soon as the first wedding sequence got over, the set and properties around me would get changed. Even the supporting actors and the crowd were different. I was the only constant in all the chaos around me-(Laughter)”.
Bharath Mohan further said that it was not easy for him to shoot for both weddings in a day, he shared “I had to change my mindset, emotion, body language and looks when doing the second one. Both Janani and Sonakshi were on set the whole day as director Mohan wanted to shoot some scenes with Janani and me, while I was marrying Sonakshi, and vice-versa. So, each time, I had to keep adjusting my emotions.”
Bharath has set a goal to complete the shoot of the film in a month only, the task was not easy and the entire cast and crew put their blood and sweat into it. He informed further, - "As I was on the move, the focus puller had to be extra careful. He had to keep adjusting the camera's focus to fix the moving target. He was groggy due to lack of sleep, and his reflexes were slow. This led to blurred shots each time, which resulted in retakes. But after plenty of attempts, we got it right. We were all very understanding of the situation though.”
“Yakkai Thiri “ is produced by Sabreesh Kumar and the story revolves around a romantic drama. Bharath, Sonakshi Singh Rawat &Janani Iyer are in lead roles among others. Music is composed by Arrol Corelli. The release date of the film is still not revealed yet.
