Vishal who was busy in Sandai Kozhi 2 has now joined the final schedule shooting of Irumbu Thirai. Today the shooting is taking place in the crowded electronic market in Ritchie Street in Chennai amidst heavy rainfall. It is noteworthy that Irumbu Thirai was supposed to be completed before a long time and get released by Pongal 2017. But then, Vishal got busy with the issues involving Nadigar Sangam and Producers Council. This had kept him away from shooting and now he is under heavy pressure to complete the shoot at the earliest. So whatever might be the climatic condition, he will be shooting for the next whole month to get the movie released for Pongal festival.
