Today, the 2nd of August 2016 marked the audio launch of the Harris Jayaraj musical, Irumugan. The project which is a directorial venture of Anand Shankar, stars Vikram, Nayanthara, Nithya Menen and others. The audio was launched at a well organised, crisp event held at Sathyam cinemas, Chennai. The event was a star studded one with stars like Nivin Pauly, director Hari, Siva Karthikeyan and many others gracing it.


Here are a few highlights from the event:


Nivin Pauly after greeting the audience in Tamil, informed that this is the first audio launch that he is attending. He also expressed as to how eagerly he is waiting to watch the movie.


Sivakarthikeyan who was greeted with shouts of REMO, jokingly said, “Please don’t insult Vikram by calling him father-in-law and all. As far as I know, Vikram sir will never grow old and will always look young. If for one Remo I have to put in extra efforts, imagine the efforts someone like Vikram sir must be putting in.” Continuing his speech he also stated, “I didn’t get tickets for FDFS of Saamy. I tried to get the tickets for other shows but got only night show. I was so excited to watch Saamy. Now it’s such an honor to be a part of this audio launch.”


Producer, Shibu Thameens, while addressing the audience talked about how comfortable he is when it comes to working with Vikram. While delivering his speech, he showed his admiration for Vikram’s work by bowing down to him on the stage. He thanked his crew for working like a family and also announced that Vikram will be playing a dual role, one as an undercover cop and another as a crazy villain who has the attire of a woman.


Director Hari, who spoke on stage next, broke the news about his collaboration with Vikram again for Saamy 2. He also confirmed the news that the producer of Iru Mugan,Shibu Thameens will be producing it, with Harris Jayaraj taking up the music department and Priyan heading the camera department .

The music director, Harris Jayaraj was the next celebrity on stage. He said “I love working with Vikram sir and I’m pleased to be working with him again. He made the song ‘Moongil Kadugale’ from the movie Samurai memorable for me”.


Director Anand Shankar who was full of praise for Vikram said, “At a time when actors pull out of existing projects due to call sheet hiccups, Vikram was fully committed to doing justice to this project. I thank him for that.” And talking about Nayanthara he quoted “For Halena song, Nayanthara was building sand castles in beach. She worked like how an assistant director would, ensuring that every detail would fit in smoothly”. He requested the entire team including assistant directors and managers to come up on the stage.

Vikram who spoke at the end told, “The director had a chance to sign up a movie with a big actor, but didn’t sign it up. When I enquired him as to why he didn’t take it up, he told me that it’s not ethical to do such a thing. That’s such a mature thought.” Talking about the producer he said “Irumugan was about to be pushed to the shelves. But Shibu, who has distributed every project of mine in Kerala, took it up and resurrected it”.


That marked the end of the audio launch event.
