Chennai Parkour Perform Chase Scene for the Film Mugamoodi

Tamil film director Mysskin's latest enterprise is a superhero film unlike any that Tamil Cinema has seen till date. The film, titled Mugamoodi is about a normal person who turns crime-fighter. In the film, as his superhero character is in development he chases two thieves.
