Chennai: The Chennai Metro Rail is all set to make its debut on the silver screen. Some scenes for actor Sivakarthikeyan’s untitled film were shot at the Koyambedu Metro Rail station for about three hours recently.

The shoot that started around 10 a.m. took place on one of the trains on the platform level of the station.

According to officials of the Chennai Metro Rail Ltd. (CMRL), they charged Rs. 12 lakh for three hours of shoot.

“We charge Rs. 4 lakh for an hour. If there is any damage to the station or the train, additional charges will be collected after assessment,” an official said.

The shoot took place in an area isolated specially for the shoot and passenger movement was not affected during this time, the official added.

Renting out space for film shooting is a good way to earn additional revenue for the Chennai Metro Rail, officials said.

Though the ticket prices have been quite high, the patronage is not great as the Metro is operated only on the limited stretch between Koyambedu and Alandur.

In Delhi Metro Rail too, a few film scenes have been shot. In 2009, a sequence of Paa was shot on Delhi Metro Rail from the Dwaraka station to Yamuna Bank and back, for about four hours.

At that time, the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) had charged Rs. 1 lakh an hour for the shoot.
