Perumbavoor: The high decibel action sequences which you are going to see in the upcoming Mohanlal- Major Ravi film is shot not on the border areas of Rajasthan or Gujarat, but our very own Perumbavoor.

The 40 acre reclaimed land near Perumbavoor is going to be picturised as the Indo-Pak border in a Mohanlal-Major Ravi film.

The shooting of firm '1972- Beyond Borders,' scripted by Major Ravi under the banner of Red Rose creations, began in Perumbavoor.

The place was selected as the location of the film because it resembles the secluded and uninhabited villages of North India.

Shooting location

Iron fences and trenches like those made in the country's border are built at the set of the film which depicts the 1971 India-Pak war. 

Mohanlal reached the location of the film on Monday morning donning an Army officer's uniform. Mohanlal dons a double role in the film as Major Mahadevan, the main character of the film and his father Major Sahadevan.

Shooting will be held day and night. The main shooting locations are Kashmir, Punjab, Rajasthan and Uganda. 

The new film is a sequel of films Keerthi Chakra (2006), Kurukshetra (2008) and Khandahar (2010), in which Mohanlal played the character of Major Mahadevan.
