MANKATHA DIDN’T DISTURB VAANAM

The audio launch of Vaanam happened to be a simple affair as it didn’t boast of much grandness, but was spangled with some interesting moments. Producer Ganesh of VTV Productions was the cynosure of everyone’s eyes as he easily captured everyone’s attention with his hilarious compereing. The event was delayed nearly by an hour as Anushka missed her flight from Hyderabad. Filmmaker Vetrimaaran launched the audio of Vaanam and distributed the copies to all the unit members. A three-minute sleek and stylish trailer was screened for the special invitees. The film’s tagline: Five Different Stories, One Climax evoked the curiosity levels of the viewers. Producer Ganesh started off ennobling Vaanam as the ‘South Indian Slumdog Millionaire’ for its unique theme.

Mankatha didn’t disturb Vaanam

Soon after Vaanam was acquired by Cloud Nine Movies, the entire production team started to vigorously promote the film. Producer Ganesh elatedly revealed that despite the busy schedule of Ajith Kumar’s Mankatha, the production team of Cloud Nine Movies made it a point of having discussions every day to promote the movie.

A Torture worst than Bala

Producer Ganesh didn’t miss to break open Bharath’s verdict on director Krish while filming a stunt sequence. Says Ganesh: “On the very first day of the shoot, Bharath was supposed to run against a Tata Sumo on fast motion and shatter the front glass clasping a stone. The task was to be completed on the first take and Bharath accomplished it but in the process had a bleeding injury. While we were treating Bharath, we had Krish’s assistant rushing towards us only to give us a shock that Krish wants Bharath to spread the blood all over his shirt for the realistic touch. Bharath was flabbergasted and said – Even Bala wouldn’t behave such peculiarly.

Guiltiness accepted

Actor Bharath reaffirmed that it was true that he was blown out of water hearing Krish being so realistic. But it’s all for the sake of perfection. Bharath couldn’t stop singing praises of Yuvan Shankar Raja. He didn’t miss to mention that Krish wouldn’t have got a perfect launch than Vaanam.

“They made me feel younger”

Saranya, who plays one of the lead roles, was spotted in a gleaming saree and pleasant smile. The actress, while sharing her working experience, said, “I am the most senior actor in this team that has more youngsters. But they made me feel younger and we were exuberant throughout the shoot. Thanks to Krish for casting me again after the Telugu (Saranya performed the role in Telugu version as well) version.”

Filmmaking is very different and easy as well

“Filmmaking is very difficult… Filmmaking is very easy – both depends on how the team works,” said Krish, who continued totting up that he felt very privileged to have such a proficient team to work with. Well, on speaking about Yuvan Shankar Raja’s music, he said that every song in this album has a different soul and will surely grab everyone’s attention.

Best than original

Young Superstar Silambarasan made it clear that the screenplay will be completely different from the Telugu version. Shedding light on Krish’s USP, Simbu said, “Soon after watching the first half of Vedam we desperately wanted to remake the film in Tamil. Apparently, we invited Krish for initial level of discussions. We were surprised to hear him confessing the flaws, he committed in Vedam. He was so involved in the remake version and was sure-footed of setting things right with Vaanam with a motto – Best Than The Original.”

Love your work, results will be fantastic

A wonderful quotation from Yuvan Shankar Raja and very inspiring as well… Yuvan Shankar Raja spoke about the instructions his father (Maestro Ilayaraja) used to give him – Love the work you are doing and the outputs are sure to exceed your very own expectations.
