Prem, who has managed to bring Mithun Chakraborty to Sandalwood, is on his way to Belagavi - one of the shooting locations for The Villain. The director is excited about this recee, for he is travelling by train along with his 12-member team. Prem, before boarding the train, told City Express, “The last time, I went for a shooting location to Rajasthan by train was for my film, Jogi, which was 10 years back. I am thrilled to take this mode of transport again.
I hope to find the best locations in Belagavi, where I will start shooting from May 18. With all the buzz that the film has generated, everybody is curious about who the heroine of The Villain will be. About this, Prem says, “What’s the hurry? Let’s wait and get the best - someone who can wholeheartedly dedicate time to our film.”
