Chennai: The climax of 'Bhoologam', featuring Australian wrestler Nathan Jones and Jayam Ravi, is ready to be canned in a boxing ring set specially erected here at the cost of Rs.1.5 crore.
Nathan Jones arrived in the city on Tuesday, and will soon start shooting for the film.
"Nathan arrived last night (Tuesday). He is likely to start shooting the talkie portion today (Wednesday) and the fight sequences in a few days. We have erected a special boxing ring set in a studio at the cost of nearly Rs. 1.5 crore," a source from the film's unit told us.
Jayam Ravi and Nathan, who had previously locked horns in Tamil action-drama 'Peranmai', will be fighting each other in a boxing match this time for a 12-minute sequence.
International stunt coordinator Larnell Stovall, who is known for films such as 'The Hunger Games', 'Jarhead' and 'Olympus Has Fallen', will choreograph the stunts for the boxing scene.
