Ameer elaborates on Yogi
July 23, 2009

The hero of the film ‘Yogi’ speaks his mind on the delay in completing the project and the huge expense incurred for this project.

Ameer said that everyone is asking the same question and one has to experience it to know the hardships faced. The director-turned-actor laments on the difficulties the unit confronted in getting permission to shoot in Chennai.

A few minutes walk in the Chennai City Center alone cost a few lakhs, he said. The Corporation of Chennai which refused initial permission for the shooting, later agreed for Rs. 40,000 for one hour. After getting permission, the authorities denied clearance to shoot in the day time and asked the team to shoot at night. This scene alone took five hours, complains Ameer. Similarly, the shops also charged exorbitant amount. The toilet scene was shot at the Satyam theatre complex which was again charged and this is the reason for the high production cost, states the director.

The movie is expected to be released for Diwali.

Speaking on music director Yuvan Shankar Raja, Ameer was all praises for him and he called him a ‘modern Illayarajaa’. Ameer says that the composer is able to bring the mood into the song. Yogi will have four songs out of which one is a promotional song.

Ameer has rendered his voice for one song in Yogi. Though this is not the first time the director will sing; as in his earlier venture Paruthiveeran, Ameer has lent his voice. Snehan also has voiced a song starting with the lyrics, ‘Seermevum Koovathila’. Ameer also said that Yuvan has composed only one tune per song as always and this has worked out in Yogi too.
