Shoots of Sasikumar’s Bramman is progressing at the Bharathiar University in Coimbatore. Environmentalists raised protests against the movie’s shooting in the varsity because the unit is using generators and lighting equipment. They claim this poses threat to the ecologically sensitive Western Ghats area where the university is located.

It is also learnt that the staffers found it irksome that the main entrance was closed owing to the shooting and they were made to use the second entrance. The university was also transformed into ‘Indira Gandhi Women’s College’ which confused quite a lot of people.

But as per the sources, the shooting is being held only with the permission of the VC who is currently out of the country. The university is also devoid of students since this is vacation time. Bramman is directed by Socrates, Kamal’s erstwhile associate. Kannada star Sudeep is also a part of the movie.

Sudheep won the hearts of Tamil and Telugu audiences with his anti hero role in “Naan Ee” directed by Rajamouli. After the success of ‘Naan Ee’ Sudeep has been receiving many offers in both film industries but he was not impressed with the storylines. Because Sudheep is very selective about his roles and he is always lookout for something fresh and unique.

After a gap he is again in Kollywood with Sasikumar and team. According to sources the movie is titled as ‘Brahman’ directed by Kamal’s formal associate Socrates. ‘Brahman’ has already completed the first schedule of shooting of 17 days in Coimbatore. The film is being made only in Tamil and it will be his first purely Tamil film.

Brahman has Sasikumar as the lead actor. At present Sasikumar is givingfinishing touches to his latest flick Kutti Puli, directed by debutant Muthaiah. The movie also features Lavanya, Santhanam, Parota Soori in important role. Sudeep will play the role of Sasikumar’s friend. Devi Sri Prasad will score the music and K Manju is the producer of this flick.

Sasikumar’s next acting venture is apparently titledBrahman. This film will be directed by Kamal Haasan’s assistant by the name Chakarty. Another interesting fact about this movie is the fact that Yuvan Shankar Raja is composing the music. This would mark the first time that Yuvan would be working with Sasikumar.

It has been planned to kick-start the shoot of this film in December end and details about the rest of the cast and crew are awaited.
