Until dawn, Jiiva was going through sleepless night
shooting for Shankar’s Nanban and he rushed
up to Sathyam Cinemas for the audio launch of Vandhan
Vendran refreshing himself with a green tea. However,
he reached the venue at the right time and so were
the other celebrities and special invitees.
The event commenced with the screening of three
songs – ‘Anjana’, ‘Kanchana
Mala’ and ‘Mudivilla Mazhaiyodu’
followed by the teasers that carried tagline: 3
Adamant Characters, One Incident that will change
their lives forever.
It was ample evidence that Kannan has something
interesting to deliver in Vandhan Vendran.
Jiiva – Producers’ Delight, Taapsee
– Boon to Producers
Producer K.S. Srinivasan of Vasan Visual Ventures
was in praise for his entire team for their earnest
work. He started off appreciating Jiiva saying,
“An actor must be a directors’ delight.
Well, Jiiva doesn’t confine to this arena,
but proves to be producers’ delight as well.
He is so humble and always concerned about producers’
well being. Punctuality, discipline and dedication
have been the key factors for his success. Taapsee
is a boon to producers for her accommodating nature.
While most of the actresses get accompanied by a
crew and demand for flight tickets and hotel rooms,
Taapsee travels across different locations alone
and we are privileged to have her as a part of this
film. Kannan is keen on sticking to the plans and
always lives up to our expectations.”
What is the similarity between Superstar Rajnikanth
and K.S. Srinivasan?
‘Prayers from all ends made Superstar Rajnikanth
bounce back to normal condition. The same reason
has been keeping Srinivasan successful as he earns
the good wishes of everyone’ uttered Pyramid
Natarajan, who shares special bonding with Srinivasan
and his father.
Thiruvalluvar’s prophecy on Ilayathalapathy,
Jiiva and Jeyam Ravi
Pyramid Natarajan didn’t miss to render a
famous Thirukural - Magan-thanthaikku Atrum Uthavi
Ivan-thanthai ennotran kollenum sol, Thanthai maganukkatrum
nandri avaiyathu munthi erupe seyal. He said so
referring to the successful father-son duo: S.A.
Chandrasekhar-Vijay, R.B. Choudhery-Jiiva, Editor
Mohan- Raja & Ravi.
‘SAC, R.B. Choudhery and Editor Mohan supported
their sons to come up well in film industry and
today their sons are making their dads proud through
their accomplishments. Of course, Thiruvalluvar
had made predictions on them before 2000 years itself’
totted up Natarajan.
A man with positive vibrations
‘Every time you meet Kannan, you can sense
the positive vibrations and that keeps him going
on the path of success’ said Suseenthiran
while speaking on the dais.. Vennila Kabbadi Kuzhu
director continued adding that Kannan’s ability
to complete his projects within a short span of
time makes him the favorite of his producers.
Good Things, Good Friends may arrive late
A philosophical quote from actor Nandha, who plays
the antagonist’s role in this film... ‘I
am thankful to the entire team and I feel happy
for having worked with Jiiva and Santhanam. Sometimes,
good things and good friends arrive late in life
and I have Jiiva-Santhanam as my close pals now’
‘We are like fruits. Directors must
‘Some of us may lose our attention as we work
simultaneously in several projects. It’s a
directors’ job to get the best out of us’
started off Thaman referring music directors as
‘Fruits’ and requested filmmakers to
extract the juice. He expressed his thanks to all
the singers and musicians, who have worked in VV,
but specifically praised Aalap Raju for his sweet
mellifluous hit melodies like ‘Yennamo Yedho’
and ‘Engeyum Kadhal’. He has crooned
the song ‘Anjana’, which is sure to
enamor the music lovers.
Jiiva ordered ¼ before, now Full
A comical reference made by Rajesh while recollecting
the dialogue of Jiiva ‘Oru Quarter Sollaen
Machi’ in Siva Manasula Sakthi. ‘Yes,
Jiiva ordered for ¼ in SMS, then ½
in Ko and is sure to have a ‘Full’ with
Jiiva is like Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir
Bollywood stars love to go by the scripts and they
never value the importance of ‘Heroism’.
We have witnessed it very much with A-league actors
Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan, who are ready to
die uncaring about the image they have amidst their
fans. ‘They are so religious in doing justice
to their roles and so does Jiiva here. He has done
a great job and the film is sure to keep him on
Taapsee is more beautiful than Preity Zinta
Jeyam Ravi marked his words of praises for actress
Taapsee saying that everyone used to tell him that
she looks like Bollywood beauty Preity Zinta. ‘But
I feel she looks more beautiful than Preity and
is sure to rock more in Kollywood’ added Ravi,
who didn’t miss to mention that he and Jiiva
have been friends for past 8 years and he feels
happy to see Jiiva still the same down-to-earth
person despites huge success.
While most of the celebrities had more words to
speak about the film and its crew, Taapsee and Jiiva
kept themselves on limits thanking the producers
for giving them a good opportunity. Jiiva brought
up the good qualities of Kannan saying that he has
the essence of Mani sir’s school and his narrative
structure is extraordinary. ‘Nandha has now
joined our friends’ gang and we are happy
to have him as our friend’ ended up Jiiva.
