Skirting the terrorist issue, Priyadarshan said: “But Tezz is not about terrorism! The man who holds the speeding train to ransom does not represent any ideology or religion. He is his own person.”
Denying that the film is a remake of famous terrorist adventures like The Bullet Train andThe Taking Of Pelham 123, Priyadarshan said, “Let people speculate on the source for my film. Tezz is just about a train hold-up. I’d say the only film Tezz resembles is Jan de Bont’s Speed.”
Now that the film is moving on the right track, the shooting of the film will begin 10th October.
“Most of us got the work permit. But 14 crew members did not get their permits. We could not start shooting without them. But now we will start shooting 10th October,” Priyadarshan said.
