Chennai, Jan 2: 'Shivappu Mazhai', a two-hour Tamil feature film on Tamils in Sri Lanka made in less than 12 hours, has entered the Guinness Book of World Records.
The movie won the honour of being featured in the world record book as the movie's shooting and post production was completed in a record 11 days, 23 hours and 45 minutes.
'Shivappu Mazhai", a Tamil film, has been shot in 11 days 23 hours and 45 minutes. We have made a record. Prior to this, a British production company held the record, which was when they shot a film in 13 days in 1990. This took 12 days only," said film director V Krishnamoorthy.
The director also said, “The film is based on Sri Lanka. The hero of the film, a doctor, works at a refugee service camp. He does not support any movement, he is offering his services to the war victims. His wife, who is also involved in the service, … becomes a violence victim herself. This is out and out, a Sri Lankan Tamil"s story."
Over six hundred technicians worked on the film, which was started in May 22 and was completed by June 3, 2009, to break the earlier record held by 'The Fastest Forward", which was made by Russ Malkin and John Gore, in just 13 days in 1990.
