Meet firefighter Vikram Prabhu!

It’s rare that Tamil films have a firefighter as protagonist. Director Ashok Kumar decided to think different. For the first time, Vikram Prabhu plays a firefighter in Neruppuda and his love interest is gorgeous Nikki Galrani.
“A lot of directors have made movies on policemen, but I wanted to do something different that is new to Tamil audience. I know for a fact that movies about fire fighters are a rarity in Tamil cinema.” The movie has two major fire-fighting scenes and shooting them were very challenging. Two fire accident episodes feature in the film — one that takes place in the 1980s and the other in 2017. We erected a huge set and we burnt around 80 huts to shoot this particular sequence.”
Lot of safety precautions had to be taken to ensure that no casualties took place. They had decided to avoid CG which would look fake.
