The audio and trailer launch of Seedan took place at Green Park Hotel in Chennai today. The event was well-attended by film personalities and Dhanush, who plays a guest role in Seedan, made a short speech before his exit as he was in a hurry to travel to Madurai for a film shoot.
Dhanush said that he dedicates this film to his wife, sister, mother and mother-in-law as it gives so much importance to women. He spoke highly of the film’s hero Krishna who is making his Tamil debut and said it would be a milestone in Ananya’s career.
Director Subramania Siva recalled the day when he met Dhanush with the offer to play this role in Seedan and the actor’s first impression was: would it be a good idea to do a guest role at this point of his career. The actor was finally convinced after the director gave him the script and immediately allotted the 23-day call sheet that was required of him. He also revealed about Vivek’s ability to play the harmonium and lauded him for that.
Vivek, who appears as a Godman in Seedan, said a very interesting story about how he learnt to play the instrument. He disclosed that his grandmother used to lend money to people who pledged their things and that’s how the harmonium landed at their house. When his mother took the harmonium out during the Saraswathi Pooja, he accidentally pressed the keys and there began his interest in playing the harmonium. Vivek also recalled some funny incidents like playing “Aayiram Thamarai Mottukal” song with the harmonium to young girls.
The trailer screened at this event was very impressive and so were the two songs. While one was a Thiruvizha song, the other was filmed on Dhanush and would turn out to be a hit among the lady audiences as it is fully loaded with cookery tips.
Seedan happens to be music director Dhina’s 50th film. The movie, which is the remake of Malayalam film Nandanam, has been produced by Mohan.
