[New Kerala, Thursday, 19 March 2009 08:11 No Comment]

The director who went to Kashmir when militancy was still rampant in the Valley to shoot his love story Yahan, is all set to shoot another film on a terror-infested troubled spot that was once known as paradise.

Shoojit who has almost completed Johnny Mastana with Amitabh Bachchan, will now plunge in a film called Jaffna, the first Hindi film to shoot in the politically-torn Sri Lankan area .

Disclosing details Shoojit says, “I think Mani Ratnam Tamil film Kannathil Muttumital (featuring Madhavan and Simran) was alsi about the LTTE. But my Jaffna would be the first Hindi film to go into the critical situation in the area.”

Sircar wants to shoot it like a thriller. “Jaffna would be an espionage thriller in the genre of The Bourne Identity . We’ve already acquired all the relevant permission to shoot in Sri Lanka.”
