Payanam, as we all know, is Prakash Raj's new offering to Tamil and Telugu fans. The movie which is about the infamous Indian Airlines plane hijack in 1999 demanded a series of sequences to be shot at an airport. So the crew of Payanam have re-created the Thirupathi airport which looks exactly the same as the original. This, insiders believe, would be the highlight of the movie.
Talking about Payanam, Telugu veteran actor Nagarjuna plays a commando in the movie. The movie has only one song which is also said to blend with the storyline. The lyrics of this song have been penned by Madhan Karki (Vairamuthu's son). The trailer of the movie is to be released on January 13, 2011 at the AVM studios.
