A press-meet of Suriya’s
latest flick Aadhavan was convened
today at Hotel Green Park, Chennai.
Suriya, KSR and Udhayanidhi were
present and answered for posers.
Suriya, in his address, hoped that
the movie would appeal to audience
from all quarters.
He also highlighted a few aspects
of the movie, like his role as a
10-year old. “We contacted
many professionals with the idea
but had to put it away for either
lack of resources or simply because
it’s obscenely expensive,”
he said. However, a Mumbai based
visual graphic artist Govardhan
came for their rescue soon enough.
“The result was simply mind
blowing and we got it done for much
cheaper than the 4 crore budget
we thought it would consume,”
He also fondly remembered his association
with Sarojadevi on the sets of Aadhavan.
“She slapped me on my back
one day and asked why I was selling
her soap dishes (referring to the
Pithamagan scene where Suriya is
shown as a hawker). It’s amazing
to note that she still watches the
latest Tamil movies,” he added.
Suriya also recalled how Sarojadevi
used to correct Vadivelu’s
intonation while singing old MGR
songs that was required for a scene.
Aadhavan is a sure shot Deepavali
release with Suriya and Nayan in
