The groundwork for Vijay’s
next film Velayudham, which is produced by
Aascar Ravichandran, is on. The film’s
director Jayam Raja has the script ready so
that he could begin this project once Vijay
It is not a secret anymore that Velayudham
is a remake of the Telugu smash hit Azad,
which had Nagarjuna, Soundarya and Shilpa
Shetty playing the lead roles. The buzz
now is that Genelia will play Soundarya’s
role, which happens to be that of a journalist
in Velayudham. Needless to say that Shilpa
Shetty’s role has been bagged by Hansika.
The music for this film is being scored
by Devi Sri Prasad.
