6 Movies filming in Chennai

Chennai, with its sophisticated film studios and post production facilities with state of art equipments, has never had any shortage of movies being shot here. The city is the hub of Tamil Cinema and is home to many South Indian movie stars.

With restrictions and immigration issues that accompany the movies that are being shot outside India, many movie makers are now turning their focus back to Namma Chennai. Here’s a list of movies which will be shot in Chennai :


We’ve all been swooning over a stylish Ajith in Vivegam teaser that got released a few days back. Reports say that Vivegam cast has returned to Chennai after wrapping up the shooting schedule in Bulgaria and the final leg of movie will be shot in Chennai. The film also stars Kajal Aggarwal and marks the Tamil debut of Kamal Haasan’s daughter, Akshara Haasan.

This Mahesh Babu starrer Tamil-Telugu bilingual directed by A.R.Murugadoss is currently being shot across various locations in Chennai. The handsome Telugu star was spotted by fans in Chennai and many took to social media sharing pictures and selfies with him. He plays the role of an intelligence officer in Spyder which will be his 23rd movie.

The Telugu heartthrob has been expressive of his love for Chennai, the city he grew up in and also speaks fluent Tamil. This will be his first Tamil movie. We wish this suave star all the luck.
