Shoojit Sircar’s next titled Jaffna would be based on the LTTE

The director, who went to Kashmir when militancy was still rampant in the Valley to shoot his love story Yahaan, 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, which will be shot in the politically-torn Sri Lankan area. Disclosing details Shoojit says, "I think Mani Ratnam's Tamil film Kannathil Muttumital (featuring Madhavan and Simran) was also 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." The cast for the film to be shot in August is now being finalized. But Sircar will produce Jaffna in collaboration with UTV.
